IDAHOBIT

Hawkesbury Community Outreach Services, ACON and Hawkesbury City Council are proud to host the screening of 'Boy Erased' at this free IDAHOBIT event in partnership with local community services. Please join us to stand with our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBTI) community and promote inclusion for all in the Hawkesbury.

Council is proud to sponsor IDAHOBIT Day in the Hawkesbury in 2019. International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersex and Transgender, IDAHOBIT Day, is a day to draw attention to the discrimination experienced by LGBTI people internationally.

We are pleased to confirm that the 2019 IDAHOBIT event will be held on Friday, 17 May from 6.30pm to 9:30pm at Richmond Leisure and Learning Centre, 114 March Street, Richmond.

The event will feature the screening of 'Boy Erased', a film based on a true story of a young man subjected to conversion therapy. Members of the public are advised that this film is classified MA15+. Films classified MA15+ can only be screened to people aged 15 years or older, unless they are accompanied by their parent or guardian.

The film ‘Boy Erased’ has been approved for release in Australia with an MA15+ classification. The organisers of the event are sensitive to the issues canvassed in the film and will position the screen to minimise the potential for passers-by to inadvertently view the screen. Entry to and screening of the film will be supervised to ensure that any young people under the age of 15 attending the film are accompanied by a parent or guardian (in keeping with the films classification).

This event is being held in partnership with a number of local services, demonstrating the commitment throughout the Hawkesbury to recognising and celebrating diversity in our community. Please join us at this free event for film, food and to promote inclusion in our community.
