October 28 marked Parramatta Pride, and WSCLC Limited celebrated in style. Parramatta Pride is an annual event that aims to raise awareness about, and connect, LGBTQI+ people in Western Sydney. This year’s theme was ‘no one left behind’. Held on the Parramatta river foreshore, the event was a fantastic opportunity to meet other LGBTQI+ groups and service providers, listen to some talented DJs, and watch some fabulous drag performers!
WSCLC Limited staff attended the event to raise awareness about how community legal centres can assist LGBTQI+ people. Some of these areas of assistance include discrimination problems, tenancy issues, domestic violence, and debt issues. See our programs page for a full list of areas we can help with.
