Put Out With Pride and become a Member today

Become a Brisbane Pride member today and help Pride Festival grow bigger and better than ever.



The major events of the Brisbane Pride Festival is the protest rally and march, which finishes at a family-oriented Fair Day. In 2011, due to financial difficulty the rally was held at the Wickham Hotel, with the march making it’s way to Perry Park in Bowen Hills, where it ended at the Brisbane Carnivalé, generously hosted and run by QNews.

This year, thanks to the success of the event and generosity of our donors, the march will follow the same route to Perry Park and end in a Fair Day run by the Brisbane Pride Festival, except in the warmer month of September.

The Fair day will have stall space available and registrations will open closer to the date.
