Sydney Family Events

Facebook fucking sucks.
But so does FOMO.

In an effort to help de-Zuck without losing community, here’s a not-perfect, not-exhaustive list of cute family gigs coming up.

Send your event suggestions to thom@unfundedempathy.com

Help us out

Thanks to all who have checked in about this page – we’re back and more amped than ever to highlight events that keep us close and connected.

It is a bunch of work…and you can help out! Send your suggestions to thom@unfundedempathy.com for consideration and listing.

And while I got you, this list is published entirely at the discretion of the site owner and his unashamed political leanings.

We will not list events at venues who do not support the values of the queer community. These include:

  • those owned by multinationals or chains
  • Liberal or National Party donors
  • those who condone sexual or labour infringements
  • those that I just don’t like

Don’t like that? That’s cool. Start your own list ❤
