New NorFUNK launched in 2022, sparked by a desire to increase LGBTQIA+ visibility in the region.

“New Norfolk is at the forefront of positive change, and a modern and inclusive community event like this will create a level of brand awareness that will benefit us all,’’ organisers said in their pitch to Council.

“Our community has a significant number of young Tasmanians among it who are hungry for safe and inclusive events that make them proud of where they live.”
