SpringOUT Pride Festival
November 9 – 24
SpringOUT Pride Festival is Canberra’s annual Queer cultural festival held each November, and is a celebration of the vibrancy of the local Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex communities. SpringOUT has much of the pride fanfare that those in larger cities would be familiar with; Fairday, dance parties, Drag Kings and Queens, youth and family events, as well as a whole range of cultural, artistic and political events showcasing the best that Canberra’s queer community has to offer. The SpringOUT Pride Festival is a project of Canberra Pride and has been held annually since 1999. This year the two-week long festivities will be launched with SpringOUT Fairday on Saturday, 9th November, held on the grounds of Westlund House, home of the AIDS Action Council of the ACT.
