PLEASE NOTE: The Rainbow Coffee Club, Lawson is no longer meeting. Regular meetings are still occurring in Lithgow – Pink Mountains, 25/5/2017.

The Blue Mountains region has gained two new daytime LGBTIQ social events, with the launch of the Rainbow Coffee Club in Lawson early this month and now, a spin-off event in Lithgow.

Following the successful launch of the Rainbow Coffee Club in Lawson on Tuesday, May 3, the Lithgow spin-off – officially known as the Rainbow Coffee Club Out West – will kick off at 10am tomorrow (Friday, May 20).

Like its Lawson counterpart, Rainbow Coffee Club Out West is designed as a “low-cost, low-pressure event for LGBTIQ people and their friends,” said organiser and Lithgow local Kay Kim.

With its daytime focus, both Rainbow Coffee Club events are especially suited to people who may be free during the day, such as students, the elderly, pensioners, unemployed people, shift workers and those with flexible working hours, said Pink Mountains co-convenor and Rainbow Coffee Club Lawson founder, Kevin Hardwick.

“A lot of LGBTIQ events are on at night. We thought it was important to have something on as an alternative during the day, for people who can’t make it to nighttime events,” said Kevin.

The Rainbow Coffee Club at Lawson is held from 10am to 12pm on the first Tuesday of each month at the MCRN Meeting Room, Mountains Community Resource Centre, cnr San Jose Avenue & Loftus Street, Lawson (same building as Lawson Library). Gold coin donation requested to help cover costs of tea, coffee and refreshments. For more information, email info@pinkmountains.com.au.

The Rainbow Coffee Club Out West is held from 10am to 12pm on the third Friday of each month at the Lithgow Tin Shed, 69 Bridge Street, Lithgow. For more information, visit the Rainbow Coffee Club Out West Facebook page.
