The Blue Mountains hosts a number of LGBTQI events during the June long weekend as part of pinkFEST including:

  • the very popular dance at Blackheath on Saturday night
  • the Three Sisters Costume Ball on the Sunday night.

The Blue Mountains have wonderful cafes and restaurants and all the gorgeous natural beauty that abounds in the area.

Why not tell your friends and make it a queer weekend in the Mountains in June 2014.

The Bent Art Exhibition opens on Friday night and  I have 2 works exhibited.

Would be wonderful if those in Sydney could support.

I started this on Friday and got to finish it today. I enjoyed trying to do precision work with Oil Pastels. Challenging but satisfying once it was done. Apologies for duplications for those who follow both of my blogs.
