This Hari Raya Aidilfitri, in an effort to create our safer space, we invite you to celebrate Hari Raya with us. Come mingle with friends and make new(er) ones too. No conversations are too queer and who knows, you may even bring home some food for thought. This is an event to bring LGBTQ+ and allies together. Jointly organised by Jejaka, TheHealingCircle.sg, Penawar & Beyond the Hijab
Date: Friday, 28 June 2019
Time: 6.30pm – 9.30pm
