The Brisbane GLBT community is revelling in anticipation of this year’s Brisbane Pride Festival.
With the theme “Love Our Way,” the festival will focus on the issue of GLBT equality. According to the Brisbane Pride website, “Equality amongst the community has been a big issue in the last twelve months with marches and rallies across the country demanding equal rights for everyone.”
The 2010 Fair Day is sure to entertain, and follows the annual rally and march. Those attending the rally are asked to gather at the Roma Street Forum at 10am before heading to Musgrave Park for the regular festivities.
This year also sees the return of the Queens Ball Community Awards. The award ceremony and dinner, which has a cabaret theme, will take place on Monday, June 14. The Awards recognise those who have contributed to the GLBT community.
The 2010 Brisbane Pride Festival will also make history with the support of an exhibition at the Museum of Brisbane.
Festival president Scott Hampson said Brisbane Pride had been heavy involved in the creation of the Museum’s exhibition “Prejudice and Pride – People, Places and Spaces”.
Said Hampson, “This exhibition will celebrate the gay and lesbian history of Brisbane.”
The exhibition opens to the public Friday 5 June at 157 Ann St, Brisbane City.
