We’re thrilled to announce that our parade is now officially part of the Newcastle Pride festival !!!! This isn’t just any parade it’s a vibrant, outdoor celebration of local LGBTQIA+ pride, culture, diversity, and equality.

We invite everyone to come out and be the truest version of themselves. This is your moment to shine, to be creative, and to bring all the colours of your personality to the Newcastle foreshore. Think rainbows, glitter, and endless fun!

Dress in your brightest rainbow get-up and paint the Newcastle foreshore with a sea of pride! Whether you’re waving a flag, dancing in the streets, or simply cheering from the sidelines, your presence will make this celebration unforgettable.
