Cleve Gardens, Beaconsfield Pde, St Kilda
Victoria

Melbourne's iconic annual Pride March recognises and celebrates Victoria's gay, lesbian, bisexual, intersex and transgender community, while remembering the road we have already travelled on this journey to equity.

The theme for 2016 is "Marriage Equality"! On Sunday 31 January 2016, Midsumma Pride March will celebrate its 21st Anniversary, so be sure you are there to show your colours! It is a key date on Victoria's cultural calendar and a destination for interstate and international visitors. Groups that may choose to take part in Pride March include:

  • GLBTIQ service and networking organisations
  • GLBTIQ Pride groups from within a corporate environment
  • Local and National equality campaigners and heroes
  • Sporting clubs or teams
  • Political groups

There are two ways you can take part in Pride March:

Get your group together to march down Fitzroy Street, St Kilda and show your pride!

Are you proud? Got something to want to tell the world? Want to do it colourfully and publicly? We have just the answer; register your group to march down Fitzroy Street as part of Pride March 2015.

Whilst we call it a march, we enthusiastically encourage dancing, singing, strutting, catwalking and voguing. The more choreographed and fabulous your group is, the more impact we can make, and the more spectacular the event gets. Take a look at Some Pride March Inspiration for a few ideas from around the world.

Purchase a picnic pack and join us for the post-march celebrations in Catani Gardens

Following the March down Fitzroy Street, the energy and pride will continue at Catani Gardens for a family-friendly, dynamic picnic in the park. Local traders will be selling delicious, delectable and devilishly good picnic baskets, so after you've watched the March, head down to Catani Gardens, grab a picnic basket and join us for the community celebrations.

Registration to march is open between September 2015 and 20 January 2016.

Any group who registers after 1 January 2015 will possibly not be listed in all print publications of Pride Marchers, due to print deadlines and publication dates.
