JOIN US AT MIDSUMMA PRIDE MARCH, 2020

DESCRIPTION

Join Pride in Water in our first water industry wide contingent for the MIDSUMMA PRIDE MARCH, 2020.

We are very excited to join water authorities across Victoria to walk proudly in the Midsumma Pride March. Bring your work colleagues, your family and friends to be part of our contingent.

The Midsumma pride march is a chance to join over 7000 people to proudly walk down Fitzroy st, St Kilda while over 40,000 people line the street in support. This year is the 25th year of the Midsumma Pride March, which started back in 1996 as an expression of solidarity and pride.

“In 2020, we will remember that Midsumma Pride March is about affirming that we’re fabulous, and we’re loved, and we’re diverse and we’re proud. We march in solidarity for those who can not.” – Midsumma Festival

Midsumma Pride March

The Midsumma Pride March is a time to come together and celebrate our diverse and beautiful LGBTIQ+ community. Through a march of unity, the vibrant and colourful Midsumma Pride March is a safer space for the LGBTIQ+ community and allies to come together. This year, we celebrate 25 years of the Midsumma Pride March. Whether you join the march by foot or by wheel, with workmates or with family, with friends or with lovers, and as ally or as queer, Midsumma Pride March is a time for you to celebrate who you are.

A pride march is a parade through the street to celebrate the people that have come before us to fight for our equal rights and to show that we are proud of who we are.
