Make sure you bring a towel as this is our prop this year, and you'll need it to help with the choreography. Its all getting exciting now!

LWP Invited to Dance in Mardi Gras ‘Afterparty’ Show

Who wants to dance in a show at the Mardi Gras Afterparty?

Mardi Gras are doing a show at the party which will include members of community organisations and have asked LWP if we want to be part of it.

They are looking for members to dance in uniform (Aussiebum branded swimwear and patrol cap) at the opening show of the party.

Auditions are on this coming Monday 15 Feb at Arq nightclub at 8.30pm.

They are looking for 5 people from each group. You don't need to be parading with us this year, but you will need to wear the uniform.

Good luck.

Mardi Gras Fair Day Sun 21 Feb - LWP Volunteers Needed!!!

Hey All,

LWP will have a stall again at Fair Day on Sun 21 Feb.

This year we will be with all the sports stalls up in the Team Sydney area. We will be wanting volunteers to join us on the stall for an hour or two throughout the day. Help us promote lifesaving amongst the GLBTI community, and promote our sponsors Aussiebum while you are at it. Can you let us know if you can swing by so we can work out numbers? If you can bring your uniform/swimmers that would be great.

We'll be there from 10am to 4pm. Looking forward to another fun day.

See you all soon.

MG 2016 Parade Rehearsal Dates!!!!!!

Hey all

We have finally booked in our rehearsal dates for the 2016 parade. It's all getting close now and very exciting. The five rehearsals will be held at Bondi Surf club and you must attend at least three of them. The dates and times are 

* Thu 18 Feb 7-9pm 
* Sun 21 Feb 6-8pm 
* Thu 25 Feb 7-9pm 
* Sun 28 Feb 6-8pm 
* Thu 3 Mar 7-9pm 

Note that the final rehearsal is the media rehearsal so if you can get there from 6.30 that would be good, but we'll go over that before then. 

We had challenges with our nights this year, but reckon Sundays will be good as we'll have more light to be outside, we can come straight from the beach, we can still head out for a drink before going home, and there'll be plenty of people around for us to impress. 

And yes, we will still post video of the rehearsal on the fb page for our absent friends, whether local or distant. 

Looking forward to seeing you all on the 18th.

BTW Marching spots have been filled and we are not looking to fill the Volunteer spots - grab some of your friends to come along on assist during the parade ...
