Text:Christchurch's lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-gendered people will celebrate their relationships on a day traditionally reserved for romanticising heterosexual love - St Valentine`s Day - on February 14 next year. The day will comprise a speakers' forum with the theme "Celebrating Queer Relationships" and will be followed by an evening dance with an emphasis on love and romance. Both functions will have sub-themes of healthy relationships, pride and acceptance of sexuality, and promoting queer health and visibility.
