Celebrating Diversity
This September, Brisbane is once again hosting the Brisbane Pride Festival, celebrating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender culture through the arts, sporting, community and political events.

Pride Fair Day is the main event of the festival. Kicking off at 10.30am on Saturday 23rd September, the annual Brisbane Pride Festival Fair Day will feature two stages of entertainment featuring local and national talent, Mr and Ms Pride competitions, Brisbane's best DJs and the traditional pet parade.

The festival is an inclusive, community-based celebration run by Brisbane Pride Inc, a non-profit organisation operated by a voluntary board /working committee, assisted by a trusty band of volunteers.

The first Brisbane Pride Festival was held in 1990 to promote public events and activities that contributed to queer culture. The first event was held as a rally and march through the streets of Brisbane, ending with a small gathering at Musgrave Park, South Brisbane. This event has now grown to encompass a parade through the city streets and a huge fair day.

Pride is now the state's largest and the country's third largest Gay and Lesbian event, attracting more than 50,000 festival-goers over a four week period in the clear and sunny spring month of September each year.

Join in the celebration of diversity at this year's Brisbane Pride Festival.
