This is a signature event where generally over 8000 marchers usually take to the streets down Fitzroy Street in St Kilda each year, and thousands (45,000 ish) line the streets and balconies along the march route, showing their support. That makes this the best-attended Pride March in Victoria. Dykes on Bikes precede the marching contingent as per tradition, with the march itself led by Boon Wurrung Elders and a Rainbow Aboriginal Float along with the Premier of Victoria, Minister for Equality and the Creative Industries and Commissioner for Gender and Sexuality. Hundreds of young people, generally the most vulnerable, are placed towards the front of the march as a positive and strong affirmation for LGBTIQA+ youth. At the conclusion, everyone descends on Catani Gardens for celebrations, entertainment, DJs and live performances.
