The Chevrolet Feather Awards are marking Pride month and the 10th anniversary of the Civil Union Act with a festive picnic on Saturday October 15.
The celebration, dubbed ‘The Pinknic’, will be held at the Cradle of Humankind. It’s one of the events leading up to the 8th anniversary of the Chevy Feathers, in November.
The awards, which recently announced their nominees (vote for your fave here) at a brunch at Constitution Hill, have had an eventful year, including hosting a series of community dialogues around the country.
The Pinknic is a first for the Chevrolet Feather Awards and will include entertainment by LGBTI DJs.
“This is our way of bringing members of the LGBTI community together to celebrate our gains and have fun,” said Thami Kotlolo, founder of the Feathers.
“We spend a lot of our time fighting various battles and never take a moment to celebrate the small wins. The Civil Union Act (which legalised same-sex marriage) is one of those wins and ought to be celebrated, 10 years on.”
A bus will be made available for the first 100 people to RSVP. There is no cover charge for the event, which starts at 11am and runs until 5pm, and revellers can bring friends, food and drinks.
