PFLAG is the first and largest organisation in the world uniting parents, carers and families of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people.
From Zero to Hero
THE LGBTQI COMMUNITY IS NOT ONE COMMUNITY, BUT IS MANY COMMUNITIES MADE UP OF PEOPLE WITH DIVERSE SEXUALITIES, SEX AND GENDER IDENTITIES.
Just like wider society, people in these communities come from differing backgrounds, hold differing political views and have differing experiences & as such, there is not one person or group who can or should represent the views of all LGBTIQ people and from that The Coastal Twist Festival was born.
By no means attempting to represent all the colours in, over and under the diverse rainbow of our planet. aka If you would like to see yourself represented, get involved, contribute, activate an event or workshop, connect, volunteer or just plain ol getting out there and amongst it.
We are an Arts & Culture community based festival, those involved represent what they wish to see reflected, creating their version of visibility.
Central Coast NSW is growing into itself, a vastly cultural coastal community that stands for a more equitable future where everyone is welcome.
COASTAL TWIST FESTIVAL
Our ANNUAL LGBTIQ CELEBRATION
“Lets make this a time to get back to connection to all things vibrant, wonderful, challenging & surprising.
Above all Coastal Twist Festival is a celebration and opportunity to engage across the diverse and divine spectrum of humanity”
