Newcastle Pride is an inclusive, vibrant and fun not-for-profit LGBTIQ community-based organisation located in Newcastle and Hunter region, NSW Australia.

Following the acclaimed success of our inaugural 2018 Newcastle Pride Fair Day, the second annual Newcastle Pride Fair Day will be held Saturday 24th August 2019.

“This Pride celebrates sexuality and gender diversity in Newcastle and the Hunter Region within and outside our community. We work collaboratively to foster LGBTIQ Pride. We are fully inclusive. We collaborate with others within our community and with the wider community. We believe in acceptance, just accept people for who they are, for our uniqueness and differences”, said Lee-Anne McDougall and Ivan Skaines, the event coordinators.

The purpose of the overall Newcastle Pride Festival is to create and foster belonging, empowerment and visibility for all by celebrating the love and diversity found within our community. The vision is to empower all LGBTIQ people to find their voice, be proud and aspire to a safer, more inclusive future.

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.

This is an unmissable opportunity to connect with a huge audience, create partnerships and networks with other associated community organisations and help build an inclusive resilient community. This major event will enable your organisation an unparalleled chance to reach out to the wider community and achieve common objectives and outcomes.

Engagement with Newcastle Pride also demonstrates your community organisation’s dedication to, and value of, diversity and inclusion.

The lineup is full of fantastic events:

Pride Fair Day, 11am-6pm: A free community colourful fun family event held at Newcastle Foreshore Park with music, market stalls, community information stalls, food stalls, ‘Sea Of Hearts’ art display, free handouts, youth workshops and hangout zone, children’s activities, dog show, drag shows and other entertainment. The major event of the festival program and a day not to be missed!
