he Perth Pride Parade is the flagship event on the PrideFEST calendar. The largest parade in Western Australia, the Perth Pride Parade sees the LGBTQI+ community take to the streets of Northbridge to celebrate diversity in all forms, queer culture and the artistic creations of the community. Whether you’re a participant or spectator, the Pride Parade is guaranteed to bring thousands to the streets in a rainbow sea of colour, celebration and happiness.
Pride Western Australia Incorporated (Pride WA) is Western Australia’s largest community group, representing the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex community.
Originally incorporated in 1993 as Lesbian & Gay Pride (WA) Incorporated, Pride WA has its roots in the 1989 march on Parliament, during the contentious debate about the decriminalisation of sex between consenting men in WA.
Since then, Pride WA has grown to stage our community’s largest and favourite events and played an important role in campaigning for gay and lesbian law reform, which saw all State-based discriminatory laws abolished in 2002.
Pride WA has a rich history and we will be publishing a history section on our website soon.
We are run by a volunteer Committee, and we will also soon be publishing a Committee page, so you can get to know the team.
