2021 has been a year, right? We thought that 2020 was one for the record books. Still, the constant pressure from Health Directives, finances and housing uncertainty, to name a few, has not really had much of an outlet.
Whatever you’re doing this year to mark the end of another year and enjoy the festive season, please remember to look after yourself and those around you. Recharge, reconnect and together we can help each other with collective care.
To all our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer, Sistergirl and Brotherboy communities and people, allies, families and chosen families, whoever that may be, we wish you and yours a very safe, happy, relaxing and recharged festive season over the holidays.
At the Queensland Council for LGBTI Health, our shut-down periods are the following:
BRISBANE OFFICE will be from Thursday 23rd of December 2021 and re-opening on Tuesday 4th of January 2022.
CAIRNS OFFICE will be from Thursday 23rd of December 2021 and re-opening Monday 24th of January 2022.
We look forward to seeing you all in the new year.
