Why

NO PRIDE IN GENOCIDE- QUEERS FOR PALESTINE AND AGAINST COLONIALISM!

REGISTER YOUR TICKET AT THE EVENTBRITE LINK!

Our theme this year is 'TRANS LIBERATION, NO NEGOTIATION'- a stand against transphobia in the streets, in our workplaces, and in the halls of parliament. In the midst of the rainbow capitalist Mardi Gras spectacle, we will stand as a reminder of the radical roots of the event, and as a symbol of the work that has been and must still be done to bring about a just and equal society. With our banners and flags we will send one clear message- No compromise in defence of our rights!

We are also standing in solidarity with the people of Palestine against the colonial Zionist occupation, recognising the links between queer/trans struggle and the anticolonial movements both in this country and abroad. We will flood the Mardi Gras parade with Palestinian flags and messages of solidarity, striking a blow against pinkwashing and showing our support for those facing violence in Gaza and the West Bank.

We will meet at Town Hall prior to the march, and move to the marshalling area at Hyde Park, where we will mingle with other floats before moving to Oxford Street and marching to the end of the parade route. Please notify us if you require special accomodations for accessibility. Bringing signs, flags and banners is not mandatory, but highly encouraged!
