Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - Jessie Tol­son

THE les­bian, gay, bi­sex­ual and trans­gen­der lo­cal com­mu­nity are in­vited to ‘‘ Gay Time’’, a ca­sual and so­cial soiree to be held at QT Re­sort Port Dou­glas on Satur­day night.

The evening is set to be a ca­sual, fun few drinks and a bite to eat where like-minded souls will have the op­por­tu­nity to meet new peo­ple and make new friends.

Or­gan­iser Gigi Le­gen­hausen and a group of friends hope to make the so­cial get-to­gether a reg­u­lar event.

‘‘We thought we would host a get-to­gether at QT be­cause it is a nice and invit­ing place with a funky feel,’’ he said.

‘‘We hope to at­tract lo­cal gay and les­bian peo­ple as well as vis­i­tors to come to­gether, so­cialise, en­joy a fab­u­lous cock­tail and have a good time.

‘‘ Liv­ing in a small town, it can be dif­fi­cult to meet like-minded peo­ple and we are plan­ning to change this.

‘‘Port Dou­glas is a very open- minded and gayfriendly place with quite a high per­cent­age of gay peo­ple who move here for busi­ness, re­tire­ment, are born here, just com­ing out, or are vis­it­ing but to ac­tu­ally meet oth­ers is not that easy.

‘‘We hope to be able to bring the com­mu­nity to­gether with this ca­sual Satur­day af­ter­noon event and es­tab­lish it as a reg­u­lar get-to­gether.

‘‘I guess we will see what comes out of the wood­works and hope­fully have a fun, reg­u­lar soiree.’’

Be at Estilo Bar at QT on Satur­day 25 May from 5pm to 8pm for some fun and meet some new peo­ple in a wel­com­ing en­vi­ron­ment.
