Family Pride Wrap Up

Thank you to everyone that came to Family Pride on Sunday May 6th. This year was huge  with over 700 people coming out to celebrate with the Rainbow Families Community.

Families enjoyed entertainment from local children’s band Beats n Pieces, Larger than Lions, Mary Kiani, and drag queens Hannah Conda and Charisma Bell. There were so many free activities for children, with jumping castles, a rock climbing wall, face painting and Proud to Play’s cricket game. As well as lots of interactive arts and craft activities facilitated by community partners.  

We thank all the community organisations that helped make the day wonderful. Thanks to the Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby, Dawson Turco Lawyers, NSW Police, the SES, ACON, Proud to Play, Gleebooks, Social Justice in Earlychildhood, and City of Sydney who provided over 1000 sausages to the crowds.

Family Pride is a day for LGBTIQ parents and their families to get together to celebrate the wonderful people we are, and the beautiful supportive community we belong to. After the difficult year last year, which took a toll on our families, days like Family Pride, and connecting with our community have never been so important.

We are thrilled to have the ongoing support from our political leaders. Our community values the time our politicians take out of their busy lives to come and celebrate with us. Special thanks to

  • Deputy Lord Mayor Jess Miller

  • Penny Sharpe MLC

  • Jenny Leong MP

  • Alex Greenwich MP

  • Clr Linda Scott

  • Clr Anna York

  • Clr Pauline Lockie

Family Pride would not be possible without the generous support of Commonwealth Bank. This is the second year CommBank has made a contribution towards the costs of the day, and equally importantly offered an army of volunteers to assist at the event. We would also like to thank our official supporters, ACON and City of Sydney.
