Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch is encouraging local businesses to get involved in the official Rainbow Windows competition as part of the Coastal Twist Festival.
“The October long weekend is sure to be fun on the Coast this year and I am thrilled to join in,” said Ms Tesch.
“This is an amazing opportunity for the Central Coast to open up our community to diverse groups of people and I hope to see all of the Central Coast over these three exciting and unique days,” she said.
The Coastal Twist festival was pitched at people from all places, spaces and identifications and was set to be the first of many local pride events.
Ms Tesch said this was exactly what the Central Coast had been waiting for.
“The Central Coast voted overwhelmingly for the legalisation of same-sex marriage.
She said most of the community took pride in and supported the sexuality and gender diverse community.
“Coastal Twist will promote tourism on the Central Coast and local businesses are being invited to show their support for the festival through a window display competition in the week leading up to the event.
“Coastal Twist is sure to bring in crowds of people from all over the state and boost our local economy.
“This is not only a fabulous all-inclusive festival but also a terrific economic opportunity for local businesses.
“We want to have landmark events on the Central Coast to continue to promote tourism and put us on the map,” she said.
