Fruits in Suits®

January 2018

The first Fruits in Suits for 2018 kicked off with a glamorous bang with Dr. Panti Bliss, a.k.a. The Queen of Ireland.  

Glen Hare, SGLBA Networker Member and owner of Fox & Hare Financial Advice provided an amazing dinner for two at Cafe Sydney for a lucky SGLBA member. Contact Glen or Jessica here or via the links below.

We were also joined by Perth based Australian photographer Richard Matias and his models. His publication, ”Liberated” is his first hard cover collection of photographs and is a celebration of the male form and an expression of life through imagery and words.

Our friends at Queer Screen and New Theatre provided several passes to a range of cinema and theatre shows See below for details and links. 

Further your life adventure.

Glen Hare started Fox & Hare with Jessica Brady after leaving Macquarie Bank after 10 years. Fox & Hare services clients want to create clarity when it comes to their finances and make their clients’ money work, ensuring that they can live the life they aspire to.

All proceeds support LGBTQI youth of WA

“The WA AIDS Council is excited to be supporting the work of photographer Richard Matias and the production of his first hard cover collection of photographs. The proceeds from the sale of the book will help assist the Council in the work that it does with young LGBTQI Youth through the Freedom Centre.”*

“The Freedom Centre has been running a drop in centre, support services, social activities and much more for over 15 years. Freedom Centre (FC) is for young people (under 26) to support each other and their communities to be informed, happy and healthy about their sexuality, sex and gender.

The drop-in centre is a safe space to hang out, have fun, meet other LGBTQI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer or Questioning, and Intersex otherwise diverse in their sexuality and/or gender) young people and get peer-support and information if they need it.”*
