Más acerca de Festival Midsumma de Melbourne

Midsumma Festival is Melbourne's annual LGBTQIA+ event that celebrates culture and local communities. Over the course of the 22-day festival, you can look forward to more than 165 queer events which take place in and around Melbourne. Midsumma Festival first began as a week-long pride in Melbourne, in 1989. From its humble beginnings, the festival has expanded into a three-week event, which attracts roughly over 280,000 people each year.  

During Midsumma Festival, a host of queer-related events take place throughout Melbourne, with everything from exhibitions and workshops to readings, sport, and cabaret. The two key events for the annual festival, however, are the Midsumma Carnival and the Midsumma Pride March. The Midsumma Carnival has arguably become the highlight of the annual festival, and usually takes place during one entire day in January, in the Alexandra Gardens. The carnival is the pefect prelude for the rest of Midsumma Festival, offering loads of live music, a T Dance, and the popular Dog Show. 

The Pride March is the second key event of Midsumma Festival, and usually takes place in February, along Fitzroy Street, St. Kilda. Welcoming over 45,000 spectators, and more than 7,000 pride marchers, this has become Victoria's largest pride march. The very first pride march in Melbourne took place in 1996, governed by Pride March Victoria, and welcomed an impressive 11,000 people. Today, tributes are still paid to this iconic moment in Melbourne's pride history.   

As well as providing an incredible three-week festival each year in Melbourne, Midsumma Festival has evolved into one of Australia's most important queer arts organizations. It continues to nuture queer art and culture, by giving voice to generations of LGBTQ people, as well as discovering new artists and initiating pertinent conversations.  

 

Programa de Festival Midsumma de Melbourne

El siguiente es el programa del evento para 2020. Estén atentos para el programa 2021.

 

El carnaval de Midsumma iluminará los jardines Alexandra este año el domingo 20 de enero. Desde las 11 de la mañana hasta las 10 de la noche, podrás disfrutar de una gran cantidad de eventos y fiestas diferentes, incluidas actuaciones "drag", un espectáculo con perros y un increíble baile por la noche con DJ locales. El carnaval dispondrá también de varios puestos de comida y un bar que servirá diversas bebidas.

La marcha del orgullo de Midsumma tendrá lugar el domingo 3 de febrero y saldrá de Fitzroy Street, St. Kilda, a las 11 de la mañana. Sumérgete en el brillo, las plumas y el color y prepárate para una increíble marcha de un kilómetro que pasará por St. Kilda y terminará en los jardines de Catani para la celebración posterior al desfile.

El objetivo de la marcha del orgullo de este año es reconocer a los diversos grupos, sexualidades, personalidades y experiencias que hacen la comunidad "queer" tan rica y colorida. Todo el mundo merece marchar, ser oído, sentirse seguro y, por supuesto, pertenecer a algo. ¿Estás preparado/a para salir con colores para celebrar el orgullo de Melbourne este año?
