    Pride-Solation is an online festival that will be aired on June 20. Over 15 regional Victorian festivals and organisations will bring you content showcasing their region. (musical, comedy, informative and educational) in order to bring together country community in this one off event! The event will run across one afternoon and evening and you can catch is being streamed live on this page. You will also be able to access the event across all the main festivals pages, YouTube and Vimeo!

    Pride-Solation acknowledges all the Indigenous peoples whose land on which the festival organisers and viewers meet. It is our hope that we will have traditional owners welcoming festival viewers onto their country, and look forward to watching this pivotal moment of the festival unfold.  If we can pull this off this will be yet another first for Pride-Solation!

    In response to the Aged Care Royal Commission, the National LGBTI Health Alliance is holding a second round of consultations around the country to inform their next two submissions. To gather community views and ensure a co-design approach, the Alliance are facilitating online consultations to review previous submissions.

    This consultation will also gather content which further describes the experiences and challenges of LGBTI older people with the aged care system as well as implications of the proposed Religious Discrimination Bill.

    All LGBTI elders, family, friends, carers and allies are encouraged to be involved. $50 gift cards available for participants.

    Did you know 2021 marks 40 years since the Victorian parliament decriminalised homosexuality in Victoria?

    As the anniversary approaches, we take the opportunity to acknowledge the courage and resilience of our LGBTQIA community, with a once-off celebration currently in planning by the State Government. We are thrilled that Midsumma has been asked to facilitate community consultation to develop ideas for content for Melbourne Pride 2021 and help make sure this statewide celebration is one we all want to be a part of!

    In a contemporary exploration of festivities, Melbourne Pride 2021 will embark on a journey of equality through inspirational arts, community involvement, food and culture. With the streets of Fitzroy coming alive as we celebrate history and build on the momentum for equality. The celebration will be an inspirational show of Pride and a reflection of 40 year “road to Pride”.

    Which gets us asking, what does Pride mean to you?

    We have an opportunity for your voice to be heard and to shape Melbourne Pride 2021 into an event which is truly owned by our communities. Join us for a workshop at GOTAFE for Greater Sheppartonians.

    Monday, 23 March, 6:00pm – 8:00pm
    GOTAFE
    152-200 Fryers Street, Shepparton

    *FREE
