It is that time of year again! Time to dust off the banners and flags and get that glitter ready, because we are proud, visible and strong!
Register now to join the Victoria Trades Hall Council Pride March 2019!
The mighty trade union movement has long been part of the struggle for LGBTIQA+ rights. From the early 1970's, fighting back against anti-gay persecution, to successfully campaigning for marriage equality. We know the fight doesn't end with marriage, the union movement has and continues to commit and stand in solidarity with our LGBTIQA+ members. Register and march in with us in solidarity.
Times, meeting venue and important information will be emailed to you, once it has been confirmed by Midsumma. In the meantime we have included some useful information.
We Have New Marching Times

Help us reduce the impact of single-use plastic water bottles by bringing a reusable bottle to the march as there will be free water refilling stations across the event.
It can be a long wait in the marshaling area, make sure you have a meal before arriving.
Be Sun Smart
Don’t forget to slip, slop, slap! We also recommend leaving your pets at home, where it’s cool.

Respect Each Other - Together We March
Midsumma Pride March brings together diverse groups, personalities, perspectives, sexualities, genders and experiences. Everyone who marches deserves to feel safe and belong. Remember we are stronger as one and greater together, so treat each other with respect on the day.
