Pride March draws 50,000 to unite in solidarity and demand equality

On Sunday March 5, 50,000 people marched across the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge as part of Sydney WorldPride’s Pride March.

The march, celebrating all that has been achieved for the community and acknowledging the work still to be done, was a powerful international statement of unity and the demand for equality, not only in Australia, but for all LGBTQIA+ people around the world.

Marchers from across the globe, dressed in bright colours, walked north to south across the bridge, joining hands with friends, allies and family to draw strength and joy from the communities that surrounded them.

The march was also a powerful reminder of the ongoing struggles for LGBTQIA+ rights in the Asia-Pacific.

The march was open to all LGBTQIA+ people and allies, bringing together people from all walks of life to celebrate the progress made towards equality and making a powerful statement for global equality as part of Sydney WorldPride.

The march took place on the final day of Sydney WorldPride, which saw Oxford Street closed for a huge street party as part of Pride Villages and the domain come to life with music and performances from Ava Max and Kim Petras as part of Rainbow Republic.

The festival ran for 17 days, from February 17 to March 5, incorporating Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras.

The full festival program over 300 events across WorldPride Official, WorldPride Arts, WorldPride Sports and Pride Amplified is available on the Sydney WorldPride website.
