Threats from a well-known Australian conspiracy theorist to Pride Week events have resulted in a local life-saving club in NSW cancelling its upcoming nippers program scheduled for Sunday, March 12, 2023. Thirroul Surf Life Saving Club (TSLSC) said that it was cancelling this Sunday’s event following threats from Wollongong-based conspiracy theorist and NSW political candidate David Graham, who calls himself ‘Guru’. “Surf Life Saving Illawarra have received threats which may affect clubs across the Illawarra related to this weekend’s support of Pride Week and inclusivity and diversity,” TSLSC said in a statement posted on Facebook. “Whilst we in no way condone this type of behaviour, the safety of our volunteers and members is paramount. Therefore we have made the unfortunate decision to cancel nippers this Sunday,” the Club said.
