City of Bayswater is set to celebrate Pride this November

The City of Bayswater say they will shine a light on inclusion and diversity as they celebrate PrideFEST through a range of events in November.

Mayor Filomena Piffaretti said the City was delighted to take part in Pride WA’s annual celebrations for a second year.

“To celebrate PrideFEST, the City will host a meet and greet with Clint Strindberg AKA Cougar Morrison and Kay Barnard, our two LGBTQIA representatives on the newly expanded Inclusion and Diversity Advisory Committee,” she said.

“This year, the City appointed its first LGBTQIA representatives, as well as two representatives from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds to its Inclusion and Diversity Advisory Committee, alongside two members representing people with disability.

“Broadening the Committee means it can now represent a range of diverse groups within the City of Bayswater.

“This is an important step towards promoting equality and equal opportunity for people who identify as LGBTQIA in our community.”

The mayor also highlighted that the city would host a meet-up for the intersex community. Partnering with Intersex WA the event coffee meet-up will be the first event of its kind for Perth’s intersex community.

“PrideFEST provides a perfect opportunity to highlight our differences and celebrate what makes us unique.

“Our City is a wonderfully diverse community and supporting Pride WA highlights our commitment to being inclusive. I encourage residents to get involved in the wide range of events on offer.” Mayor Piffaretti said.
