One moment in time
The Sydney Pride Festival 2019 “RIOT 69” will launch at Stonewall Hotel on Thursday 6th June. Sydney Pride Festival will run from the 6th until the 30th June.
This year’s Pride theme is “RIOT 69” One moment in time. Remembering the Riots of 1969 at the Stonewall Inn Greenwich Village. The Heroes that lead the way and fought for our rights 50 years ago. The beginning of the modern gay movement and the inspiration to the 78er’s who paved the way in Sydney. The LGBTQI community are all under one fabulous Umbrella and together we continue to create change and acceptance. Homosexuality is no longer illegal in Australia, Marriage Equality has been achieved and our community has shown that the Riots of 1969 will always be remembered as the beginning of the Pride Movement.
Sydney Pride Festival is a grass roots festival and a time to pass on the history and raise awareness and education of our LGBTQI Charities. This year we will be putting a focus on the strength of our Community and remember our pursuit for acceptance and total Equality for all our LGBTQI brothers and sisters. Sydney Pride can reach out and help those struggling with Sexual identity, bullying, drugs or just feeling that life is too hard to stand strong and ask for help. Standing Together in Solidarity. This is Pride!
The Sydney Pride Festival is a special time for the LGBTQI community as we remember the history and celebrate the present and look forward to a day when everyone is Equal. Sydney Pride Festival is a not for profit event which supports a wide range of LGBTQI Charities, Organizations and businesses. This Sydney Pride festival will include events throughout Sydney that are fun and affordable for everyone. The events will raise much needed funds for Charity and showcase our community and achievements.
This is a time to remember the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and the beginning of Gay liberation as we know it. The Sydney Pride festival is dedicated to those that lead the way back in 1969 who fought for equality and human rights and the incredible strength of our friends who marched in the first Sydney Mardi Gras in 1978.
Last year the Sydney pride Festival contained over 100 events. The festival will feature Art, Cinema, Trivia, Debates, Sports, Fundraising activities and Club events across Sydney. The Sydney Pride Festival would like to thank the volunteers, event organizers, sponsors and LGBTQI community and all our friends for all their support.
We are currently seeking expressions of interest in holding events.
