Last Saturday we attended the annual carol night put on by the Melbourne Gay and Lesbian Chorus , accompanied by the Melbourne Rainbow Band. The venue was the courtyard at the Prahran Market and it is a fantastic night.
There were some straight folk, a few kiddies, but the majority of the estimated 600 strong audience were g and l. The performers were sex, age and ethnically diverse. Always good to see.
Our table of 22 shrank to about 18 as a few did not turn up, but we had a prime viewing and listening possie once again, thanks to Irene (Irene Chapman Antiques, 126 Bay St, Brighton).
Lesson learned, rather than have Hungry Jacks first and spend heaps on too much wine, eat a meal from Fresky's and take you own wine.
Pencil it your 2005 diaries, early December, you won't be sorry.
