Hundreds of Pride festivals from across the globe were cancelled due to Covid-19, but the Pride spirit lives on!
The GLOBAL PRIDE 24-hour online broadcast is happening on YouTube and Facebook from 3pm this Saturday afternoon Sydney time.
Mardi Gras has helped curate two and a half hours of footage from Australia and the Pacific region. We worked with the teams at Brisbane Pride, Midsumma, Tropical Fruits and many more Pride and LGBTQI organisations from across Australia, along with our Kiwi friends at Auckland Pride and the Wellington International Pride Parade.
The Australian content in the show will begin at 4:15pm this Saturday (Sydney time) so it’s among the first countries included – after the messages of welcome, the Pacific Islands and New Zealand.
There are lots of Aussies in the broadcast, including performances by Courtney Act, Betty Who, G Flip, Mama Alto and the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Choir, plus very special messages from Dannii Minogue, Olivia Newton-John, Equality Australia, ACON’s TransHub, Bi+ Visibility, the Koori Pride Network Victoria and many more. You can see the full schedule on the Global Pride website.
