Picnic For Pinnacle

Things are in full swing with Picnic for Pinnacle. Picnics are being hosted by supporters and partners across the country to raise funds to educate and empower young LGBTIQ+ Australians to realise their full potential and overcome challenges arising from their identity.

Thank you to everyone who has already hosted a picnic or is planning to host one before the end of March. Thank you to the Pinnacle scholars and alumni who have attended picnics and shared their stories.
