Last Saturday, 

Newcastle Pride and Queer & Now brought together members of the Newcastle LGBTIQA+ community to celebrate the start of 

2023 Sydney World Pride in Newcastle. The 78er’s led the parade as we sashayed along the Honeysuckle boardwalk. This once in a life time parade was a colourful outdoor parade celebrating LGBTIQA+ culture, diversity and equality. The community turning out as truest version of themselves, creative and colourful we painted the Newcastle foreshore with a sea of pride ! It was great to see Helen (78er’s), ACON team, Tim Crakanthorp MP and team, Deputy Lord Mayor Declan Clausen join us and celebrate. 

Thanks to our sponsor The Albion Hotel | Wickham & photographer Glen Scarborough from ISpy photography Newcastle. Coles Thornton for snacks & water, but our biggest thanks go out to you! 

The Community … YOU’RE FABULOUS!
