After the devastating floods in Lismore in the aftermath of Cyclone Debbie, northern NSW LGBTI group Tropical Fruits have decided to defiantly dance on to raise money for those affected.
In late March, thousands of locals were evacuated from the area as Lismore’s CBD flooded after the Wilson’s River broke its banks in the aftermath of the cyclone.
Now Tropical Fruits say they’ll defiantly dance on at their Confessional Easter Party this weekend, which will be a dance therapy-come-fundraiser to raise money for the LGBTIQ community affected by flooding in the Northern Rivers.
Organisers said $10 from every ticket sold will be donated to LGBTIQ survivors of the flooding, which Tropical Fruits will match dollar for dollar. LGBTIQ community members affected by the flooding will be able to apply directly to Tropical Fruits for small grants to help their flood recovery.
Flood survivors will also be offered $10 party entry, but no-one will be turned away at the door due to lack of funds.
DJs Colin Gaff from Sydney and Kylie Rose from Brisbane will be on the decks and Lytex and Kannibal Kitty will perform shows on the night.
Tropical Fruits’ Confessional Easter Party is on Saturday, April 15 from 8pm to 2am at the Italo Club Auditorium on Barrow Lane in North Lismore. For more details, visit the Tropical Fruits Facebook page or the group’s website.
