WELCOME TO NEWCASTLE PRIDE
Newcastle Pride celebrates sexuality and gender diversity in Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and the Hunter Region within and outside our community. We work collaboratively to foster LGBTIQA+ Pride. We are fully inclusive. We collaborate with others within our community and with the wider community.
Our vision is to empower the current and future generations to be their true selves and feel accepted, find their voice and be proud of who they are, regardless of their gender identity or sexuality. We aspire to a safer, more inclusive future for our community.
The Newcastle Pride Festival is an exciting, glamorous and “out n’ proud” series of events that aims to showcase to locals and visitors that Newcastle is a city of diversity, culture and beauty. We plan to grow the Festival into an annual event and bring our community together in unity to leave a legacy for the LGBTIQA+ youth fostering a vibrant and supportive future community.
Newcastle, Hunter and Lake Macquarie Pride respectfully Acknowledge the Traditional Custodians and rightful Owners of the lands on which we gather, celebrate and work, the Awabakal, Worimi, Wonnarua and Darkinjung people. We Acknowledge the Elders of the past and present, as well as all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people, who are the Elders of the future. We honour their continuing sacred connection to Country and culture. We Acknowledge all Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Intersex, Queer, Non- Binary people, Sistergirls and Brotherboys that have paved the way before us.
Always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.
Newcastle Pride would like to give special thanks to James Murray Funeral Directors for generously providing an ongoing meeting space for Newcastle Pride to hold its regular Committee meetings / Annual General Meeting during the year and also during festival time a space to conduct our volunteer information sessions. We greatly appreciate this support.
