PARTNERSHIP & SPONSORS
Following the acclaimed success of our inaugural 2018 Newcastle Pride Festival with 7,000 people in attendance and an atmosphere that was filled to the brim with energy, love and diversity, Newcastle Pride Incorporated is excited to announce that preparations are underway for our 2019 Pride Festival from Thursday 22 August to Sunday 26 August 2019.
Newcastle Pride brings many benefits to Sponsors. Aligning your business or organisation with our diverse community offers a unique networking opportunity to promote your brand or organisation and reach thousands of LGBTIQ members and allies. It also offers your business or organisation the opportunity to demonstrate your commitment to diversity and inclusion, thereby supporting positive change in mainstream attitudes towards LGBTIQ people, and creating a more accepting and inclusive society
As a grass roots event, our Pride Festival builds inclusion and social capital, and enriches the diverse fabric of our community. Also, the Festival is making an important contribution to “diversity tourism” in Newcastle and the Hunter and promoting our area as a “must see” destination.
Newcastle Pride invites you to come on board as a Sponsor and assist us in creating social harmony and celebrating community in all its diversity in Newcastle. All events will be open to the general public, and although several of the events will be ticketed, your contribution will assist with off-setting significant costs such as venue hire, insurance, audio/visual rentals, website and social media management, marketing and general expenses associated with running the Festival
