Lucie, Amy and Reeshel arrived at Victoria Park at 7:30am. The Seahorse stand was located at the back of the park under a large tree. Neighbouring stands varied between commercial retail stands and community groups (a women's refuge, the Deaf Society, NSW Teacher's Federation and several religious groups). We set the stall up with the banner and printed materials. Susan and Sandra joined us at 9:30 with more printed materials and several decorative seahorses.
People took turns to work within the stall and answer questions from passers-by. While there were quiet periods for the stall, we did get quite a few interested people coming by to ask questions, including several psychologists, a high school teacher and other members of the public. Some people stopped simply to ask what we did, as they were interested in our name. We had a couple of past members stop by to say hello and tell us they would be interested to reconnect with the society.
Lucie, Susan and Sandra were able to take walks around the fair at various times and were able to connect with other groups, including NSW Police, Beyond Blue, Australian Gay and Lesbian Archives, Unbiased Bowling and Camp Coop . This was helpful as it gave us some ideas for future activities the Society could be involved in, or other ways we could connect with the GLTBQI community:
