Southern Star, Thursday February 5, 2009 (Issue 018)
ON a sunny afternoon in February 2009, 45,000 people marched down Fitzroy St in Melbourne’s St Kilda neighbourhood to mark the 14th annual Pride March.
“This is a wonderful occasion,” she told enthusiastic crowds after the march.
“Unquestionably you’ve been there and you’ve supported me and it’s a great pleasure to be part of this wonderful community.”
It was Nixon’s second appearance at the march, after she controversially led the Victoria Police contingent back in 2002.
* Southern Star is what the Star Observer was known as in Melbourne in 2009.
