Gold Coast Gay Day A Success 2009: Gold Coast

Gold Coast Gay Day A Success

Gold Coast Gay Day 2009 was a big success according to its committee, with glorious weather and a great turn out supporting the event.

In its second year running, the day saw approximately 1700 people through the gates, a large increase in crowd numbers and stall holders from the previous 2007 event. &8220I still have the biggest grin on my face, the day was a huge success! The weather was glorious, the program ran to time, the music was constant and the entertainers were great,&8221 said Roni Schmutsch from the Gold Coast Gay Day committee. &8220Congratulations go out to all the wonderful gay community that came out in support. We are very pleased that the majority of the crowd seemed to be having a great day!&8221 Figures are yet to be released on how much money the event raised for the Care For Life: Suicide Prevention charity, but the amount is sure to top the $500 raised last time the event ran in 2007. The only incident of the day was when two female party goers scaled a building, trying to cut down a giant rainbow flag and steal it. &194 &8220Obviously they have no respect for our flag, our event or our community,&8221 said Roni in response. &8220Brisbane Pride have been kind enough to lend us the flag each year, and these girls showed nothing but their stupidity.&8221 The committee have not confirmed whether Gold Coast Gay Day will return in 2010, but after this year&8217s success it looks very likely.
