Last Friday I joined local member Alex Greenwich at Stonewall Hotel to officially launch Sydney Pride Festival – held in June to mark 49 years since the Stonewall Riots and 40 years since our first Mardi Gras here in Sydney.
There is of course an added reason to celebrate Pride Month this year – six months since marriage equality became law here in Sydney after the resounding success of last year’s postal survey.
Sixty-two percent of Australians voted yes – and in Sydney it was 84 percent.
There is a terrific line-up of events, debates, trivia and sport carnivals from now until the end of the month, and I encourage you to join the celebration.
