About Perth PrideFest

PrideFest is an annual event held in Perth, Western Australia to celebrate and support the LGBTQ+ community. The festival typically takes place in November and features a range of events, including a parade, street fair, and live performances.

PrideFest in Perth has a rich history that dates back to the 1980s. The first Pride march in Perth was held in 1989, organized by the Perth Gay Liberation movement. This march was a protest against the discrimination and marginalization faced by LGBTQ+ individuals in Australia at the time.

Over the years, the event has grown in size and popularity, and in 1993, it became known as PrideFest. The festival has evolved to become a celebration of LGBTQ+ culture and diversity, featuring a range of events and activities.

In 2015, the festival was officially recognized as part of Perth's major events calendar, reflecting its importance to the local community. PrideFest continues to be organized by the Pride WA organization, a non-profit group dedicated to promoting the rights and well-being of LGBTQ+ individuals in Western Australia.

Today, PrideFest is one of the largest LGBTQ+ events in Western Australia and attracts thousands of people each year. It serves as an important platform for promoting visibility, equality, and acceptance of the LGBTQ+ community in Perth and beyond. The highlight of the festival is the Pride Parade, which sees thousands of people march through the streets of Perth in a colorful and festive procession. The parade is a symbol of pride and unity, and it showcases the diversity and inclusivity of the LGBTQ+ community.

The PrideFest Street Fair is also a popular event, where attendees can enjoy food, drinks, and live entertainment. The fair is an opportunity for LGBTQ+ individuals and allies to come together and celebrate their community.
