Hobart ready for Pride Parade

Hobart ready for Pride Parade

BRISBANE may have recently dusted off another successful Pride Festival season and Canberra’s month-long SpringOUT festival is currently happening, but now one of Australia’s smaller capital cities is gearing up for its Pride Parade tomorrow.

Part of the TasPride Festival, Hobart’s city centre will be covered in the colours of the rainbow as the fourth annual Pride Parade takes over the streets of the Tasmanian capital.

With TasPride officially kicking off today and events happening all over the state, organisers expect tomorrow’s Pride Parade to be a focal event on the festival calendar.

The parade will conclude in St David’s Park with the Community Gathering, where there will be free entertainment, live performances and market and community stalls.

The theme for TasPride this year is “Home Grown Pride”, celebrating the diversity of the talent in the Tasmaniam LGBTI community, and encourage acceptance and equality in wider society.

Aside from Pride Parade tomorrow, the 10-day festival includes a range of cultural events and parties in Hobart, as well as the Festival Hub at the Salamanca Arts Centre. Launceston will also host its first diversity street party.

Next week, major LGBTI cultural festivals PrideFest and Feast Festival will begin in Perth and Adelaide respectively.

TasPride runs until November 16. Click here for full details, or visit the Facebook event page for details on tomorrow’s Pride Parade.
