About the Show
Presented by Midsumma Festival
Gather your friends and allies together as we take to St Kilda’s Fitzroy Street, to rejoice in our diversity and achievements, at Victoria’s annual queer march.
Mobilise against marginalisation with Midsumma Festival, in this march of celebration and solidarity, as we unfurl our flags, frock up and keep fighting.
In 1996, more than 11,000 people swelled onto the streets to rally in part against the infamous Tasty Nightclub raids. Twenty three years later we’re still marching, stronger and prouder than ever.
Midsumma Pride March Awards, intended to encourage a bright presence from participants, and Post Pride celebrations at Catani Gardens will round off the day.
Want to march? Register at Pride March Participation by Monday 4 December.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are invited to march in the Indigenous Pride Float alongside Elders. Meet at 1pm at Ian Johnson Oval, St Kilda (find the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags at Wave A) and be sure to RSVP on Facebook.
