Out in the Streets is a panel discussion to analyse Sydney's vibrant history of LGBTIQ activism. Marriage Equality is the most recent issue to galvanise the LGBTIQ and broader communities into action. But ME is part of a much longer history, with victories on the road to equality won through the persistence of our activists and the resilience of our community.
Now in its 25th year, join the Sisters as they visit the world renowned Taronga Park Zoo at Mosman for their Annual Zoo Walk. The journey starts for most by joining the Sisters at Wharf 2, Circular Quay, to catch the ferry across to the zoo, and then catching the cable-car or bus up to the top gate. At the Top Gate we are met and greeted by Zoo Guides and Zoo Keepers, and subject to the availability of suitable animals there is likely to be some Australian fauna that can be gently petted (under supervision, of course), or observed in the arms of their keepers. The Sisters’ Walk around the zoo is accompanied by the knowledgeable Zoo Guides, and we will focus on visiting the Australian contingent … and along the way the Sisters will be able to share with the party, some of the recipes and cooking techniques that were used in the 19th Century … in fact, some of the recipes are still in vogue today. The Sisters may well also take the opportunity to read selected poems to the animals for their edification. The escorted walk will conclude as the Sisters get to the celebrated Bird Show at 12 noon or an alternative special event such as Dingo feeding time. Thereafter, participants are invited to join the Sisters for luncheon, and/or to explore other parts of the zoo at their leisure.
