In October 1982 the Gay Business Association (now the SGLBA) launched the first Fair Day, organised by Rob Cooper a former Councillor of the Sydney City Council.
It was held in Shannon Reserve next to the Clock Hotel in Crown Street Surry Hills and was a very successful day and at the end featured “mud wrestling” much to the excitement of the large crowd
The event subsequently outgrew the area and was moved to Green Park across from St. Vincent’s Hospital where the closure of Darlinghurst Road from Oxford to Burton Street provided a great atmosphere and area for street stalls.
While 2020 Fair Day didn’t include any mud wrestling, there was still plenty to see, do and experience. The SGLBA team managed to give away 1,000 show bags.
Earlier in the day, show bags included brochures and various offers from members. A tip for Fair Day 2021 would be for members to provide more content for inclusion in these showbags.
