Fruits from Brazil
Fruits from Brazil started in 2014, by a couple of LGBTQI+ friends on Facebook. They created a group to connect the Brazilian queer community in Australia, and help newly arrived LGBTQ+ Brazilians in settling and integrating successfully into the local Australian community.
We started with over 100 members, holding regular, social monthly meetings. Today we are more than 2k members and growing. We have had our own Mardi Gras float since 2014, and continue holding monthly social meetings, as well as other events.
We are registered as a not-for-profit association.
