    On Saturday 23 June Shepparton and Mooroopna Football/Netball Clubs will battle it out at Deakin Reserve for the region’s inaugural Pride Cup.

    A family day for locals and visitors alike including food, stalls and football/netball will see rival teams compete for the Pride Cup. Pride Cup celebrates diversity and inclusion in sport for the lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual and intersex (LGBTI) communities by tackling homophobia in Australian Rules Football.

    Local GV Pride Secretary, Damien Stevens, says, “The sports oval has historically been a scary place for LGBTI people, with homophobic language on the field often leaving us feeling unwelcome or having to remain in the closet. Pride Cup sends a clear message that LGBTI people and their skills/talents are valued in sport.”

    What started out in 2014 as a celebration match between traditional rivals Yarra Glen and Yarra Junction has turned into a strong symbol for inclusion in Australia’s favourite sport right across Victoria. Now there are a range of Pride Cup games that are held throughout the state, including Shepparton.

    Will Phillips, President Shepparton Football Netball Club says, “Sometimes actions speak louder than words. I see it as a great opportunity for our club to be involved in the GVL Pride Cup match in 2018. SFNC has a long and proud heritage and if our leadership can, in any way, raise awareness of the regions diversity and promote the LGBTI+ communities inclusion in our sport, then we will be supportive at all levels. The event itself will be a festival of football, netball and fun and we look forward to seeing as many people as possible at Deakin Reserve Shepparton on the 23rd June to celebrate diversity and inclusion in sport.”

    Pride Cup was also the inspiration for the AFL Pride match.

    Shepparton’s Pride Cup is proudly supported by Shepparton Football Netball Club, Goulburn Valley Pride Inc., ANZ Shepparton and Greater Shepparton’s LGBTI+ Community Alliance.

    See STIGMA on Friday 8 Dec in Shepparton!

    GV Pride member special – quote promo code STIGMA for $25 tickets!

    A confronting and dynamic live theatre and movement performance, examining the prejudices, discrimination and stigma experienced by people living with HIV.

    STIGMA is a bold, confronting and dynamic live theatre and movement performance examining how stigma, prejudice and discrimination push those living with HIV to the margins of society. Shared from lived experiences, this series of provocations on the stigma of HIV/AIDS seamlessly blends dance and acting in an expressive portrayal of an often voiceless community.

    This work contains full frontal nudity and sex scenes.

    Stigma relates to a strong feeling of disapproval that people in a society have in response to something. People living with HIV experience this daily, in particular with regards to intimate and sexual connections.

    STIGMA confronts self-hatred imposed by mass culture and the ignorance of the ill-informed and commercial media. It unpacks this difficult terrain with a revealing visual and artistic narrative composition.

    Produced by Devize Co in partnership with CERSH, OSKA, Victorian AIDS Council, Living Positive Victoria, Positive Women Victoria and The Space Dance Centre

    “Whilst somewhat disturbing in the truth, well devised, exceptional acting and dance, and a lesson to all”
    – Review by Graeme McCoubrie – Melbourne Starobserver

    “Dance theatre, like most hybrid forms, is a doubly difficult beast to master, and Darren Vizer impresses with the clarity and intricacy of its art” – Plunge Melbourne Fringe 2015 (Cameron Woodhead, The Age ‘Four Stars’).

    Tickets on sale now via Riverlinks. Reminder – quote promo code STIGMA for $25 tickets!

    Join us on Thu 7 Dec @ 4.30PM for a FREE movement & theatre workshop too!
