As out and proud

As we've ever been.

We've always taken pride in being a company that celebrates people for who they are. So whether you identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, straight or whether you've decided to throw labels out the window altogether - we don't just support you, we're right there with you.


That's why we've been proud partners of Midsumma Festival since 2013. And why we're especially proud to continue our partnership into 2017. This year is Midsumma's 30th anniversary with the central theme being a celebration of the Festival's longevity and coming of age.

Our support in the community.
