ACON is also undertaking a series of webinars at the current time.
COVID-19 and Our Regional Communities
ACON will be hosting a live online information session to explore coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on sexuality and gender diverse communities.
We know that COVID-19 is having a profound effect on the regional communities ACON works with and for. Confusion and misinformation is everywhere, and this can sometimes make understanding COVID-19 difficult. ACON will be hosting this online information session to dispel myths and misunderstanding, and come together as a community to discuss COVID-19 and how it is changing the ways in which we socialise, work, and have sex.
The forum will include experts from the Regional NSW community as well as local entertainers from the Hunter and Northern Rivers areas who will guide, inspire and entertain us through this difficult time.
Wednesday 13 May 3pm – 4.30pm.Send your questions and RSVP here.
