Sydney's bidding for WorldPride 2023
Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras are excited to announce our bid to host WorldPride 2023.
A successful bid would see Sydney become the first destination in the Southern Hemisphere to host WorldPride, the marquee international LGBTQI pride event.
WorldPride 2023 would coincide with the 45th anniversary of the first Mardi Gras Parade.
Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras will present its bid for the biennial event to members of InterPride at their AGM in Athens in October 2019.
The inaugural WorldPride was held in Rome in 2000. Cities which have hosted WorldPride since 2000 include Jerusalem, London, Toronto and Madrid.
Our WorldPride 2023 bid is happening with the support of the NSW Government, Tourism Australia, ANZ and QANTAS.
