What is Midsumma Pride March? 

A signature event of Midsumma festival, over 7,400 marchers usually take to the streets down Fitzroy Street in St Kilda each year and over 45,000 people line the streets and balconies along the march route to show their support for the Rainbow Community.  

Dykes on Bikes precede the marching contingent as per tradition, with the march itself led by Boon Wurrung Elders and a Rainbow Aboriginal Float along with the Premier of Victoria, Minister for Equality and the Creative Industries and Commissioner for Gender and Sexuality. 

Young people, often amongst the most vulnerable within our communities, can walk towards the front of the march as a positive and strong affirmation for LGBTIQA+ youth.
