Pride Western Australia Celebration Events to incorporate Sneaky Sound System, DJ Jewel

“If the PRIDE PARADE is the rainbow, then PRIDE CELEBRATION is the pot of gold at the end of it! ”

– Pride CALIFORNIA

 

Pride Western Australia (Pride WA) is Western Australia’ s biggest LGBTI community Pride organization and festival organizer. This week, the group introduced its annual November PRIDEFEST lineup which is stellar, as usual. Whether it’ s drag parties, Pride occasions, or gatherings like its February FAIRDAY celebration in Hyde Recreation area, when it comes to Gay Pride, the Aussies go big.

Centered in Perth and taking place throughout Western Australia, PRIDEFEST is a almost month-long affair (well, okay… will be three weeks “nearly? ”). It all begins with a daytime Pride parade through the streets of Northbridge. Shortly after the parade, the march will be followed up with “CELEBRATION, ” the day long music and artistry festival in Russell Square.

According to the festival’ s planners, the group will hold over 50 CELEBRATION events: complementary happenings during the three week event include live theater, queer film fests, the full parade itself, a curated piece over the history of the Pride Parade and more—turning Western Australia into, essentially, a lively, colorful LGBTQ mini-village.

According to the group’ t Facebook page, its first Pride March took place in 1989 in Perth, Australia. During the day, activists took to the streets to march on Parliament. They brought attention to the debate to decriminalize sex among consenting men in Western Quotes. The group finally transitioned to integrated status in 1993 as Saphic girls & Gay Pride (WA) Inc., (renamed Pride Western Australia in 2003) evolving to become one of Australia’ s largest gay and lesbian festivals planners and they’ ve never appeared back.

The self-supported Pride organization funds itself through its many educational events, celebrations, festivals, donations and memberships.

CELEBRATION’ s lineup by itself is, in Pride WA’ t own words, “massive. ” Here’ s the lineup:

Additional information from the event organizers:

* Pride Western Quotes members receive free tickets in order to CELEBRATION

* CELEBRATION is a fully licensed 18 and over only event. However , there are plenty of events during the festival for families and teens/youth under 18.

* Due to sponsor assistance and participation, Pride WA has waived the $500 fee regarding community groups to participate in float building and Pride events (to get in touch with Pride WA to take part, contact Artistic Director Paula Hart).

* Though the event has acquired sponsors to help include its costs, Pride WA still needs vendor and advertiser support. To place an ad in their system or in other event materials, they invite you to check out their on-line media kit.

Overall, ain’ t nothin’ wrong with a (nearly! ) month-long soiree.
