Parramatta City Council recently asked Twenty10 to remove their banner at a community event on the grounds that it contained 'offensive language'. The banner was simply offering support for the LGBT community, and provided a URL to find out more information. LGBT youth need to know that there is help out there for when they need it. This is 2013, surely we're beyond the point of stifling basic human rights and the freedom to express individuality.
Edited to add: This issue has caused quite a stir in the media!

Your behaviour at a recent community event in relation to the LGBT organisation Twenty10 was appalling. Twenty10 and the LGBT community deserve an apology at the very least.
