Rainbow Families events are an opportunity for families with LGBTIQ identifying parents and/ or children to come together as families to connect and celebrate their family’s uniqueness in a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental environment. Events provide a great opportunity for families to form new friendships, or catch up for fun activities with existing friends. Each event reflects the Council's values of Respect, Inclusiveness, Partnership and Empowerment, and have lasting positive impacts on our overall community.
The ACT and NSW have both seen an increase in multi-drug-resistant shigellosis cases acquired through male-to-male sexual contact which are resistant to all recommended oral antibiotics.
Shigellosis is an infection caused by a bacterium called Shigella.
As we enter the new financial year, it is a great time to reflect on the ongoing contribution of members and supporters of the AIDS Action Council.

It is now that time of year where we renew our memberships. Membership of the Council is vital in continuing the vital work of the Council supporting our communities and ending discrimination, marginalisation and stigma for those living with and impacted by HIV/AIDS.
We hosted the Rainbow Families Winter Ball on Saturday 16 June at Corroboree Park in Ainslie following our inaugural Rainbow Families Dance Party last October. Our Rainbow Families events provide a fun, safe and inclusive environment for LGBTIQ families to get together, make new connections and nurture existing ones.
