Picnic for a Good Cause with Picnic for Pinnacle

Picnic for Pinnacle is a fun-in-the-sun picnic that encourages friends, family and workplaces to raise much-needed funds for young LGTBIQ+ Australians who have been disadvantaged because of the way they identify to reclaim their path.

Despite Australia achieving marriage equality, many young LGBTIQ+ people are still suffering. LGBTI+ Health Australia research tells us that young adults in the LGBTIQ+ communities are still between five and 11 times more likely to attempt self-harm or experience psychological distress directly related to experiences of stigma, prejudice, discrimination, bullying or abuse. That’s where the Pinnacle Foundation steps in. This not-for-profit organisation provides educational scholarships, mentoring and opportunities for young LGBTIQ+ Australians to create a more diverse and inclusive society with visible LGBTIQ+ role models.

From 6th-21st February, The Pinnacle Foundation will be encouraging Aussie’s to help educate and empower young LGTBIQ+ Australians to achieve their full potential by hosting and attending a Picnic for Pinnacle event. With many Mardi Gras festivities cancelled or postponed across the country, this is a wonderful event to continue Pride celebrations throughout Australia.
