OUTintheOPEN is Shepparton’s newest festival celebrating community diversity.
OUTintheOPEN was developed to address some of the inequalities faced by the local gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer (GLBTIQ) & allied communities and to build a more inclusive community in Greater Shepparton.
The festival is led by Kildonan UnitingCare and is proudly supported by many other organisations and community groups, including:
• The Bridge Youth Service
• Goulburn Valley Pride Inc.
• PFLAG (Parents, Family members & Friends of Lesbian & Gay people) Greater Shepparton
• Diversity Group (same-sex attracted & sex and gender diverse young person’s social-support group)
• Goulburn Valley Health
• Primary Care Connect
• Centre for Excellence in Rural Sexual Health (CERSH)
• Relationships Australia Victoria
• Goulburn Valley Primary Care Partnership
• Greater Shepparton City Council
• Goulburn North East Women’s Health
• Goulburn Valley Hotel
• Victoria Police
• Word and Mouth
The festival will consist of a health/wellbeing forum at Goulburn Valley Hotel function rooms and a Carnival day on the third weekend in November at the Queens Gardens. Other events will occur during the weekend across the City of Greater Shepparton.
