After uncertain times in 2021, Brisbane Pride Fair Day returns this Saturday.

Returning to New Farm Park again, Fair Day will kick off after the annual Pride March.

Earlier this month both events were postponed due to COVID-19 safety concerns.

Brisbane Pride March continues, with some late changes

The Pride March traditionally begins with a rally and speeches.

Earlier this month it was announced the rally would have no speeches, but on Wednesday Brisbane Pride announced some small changes.

At 9:30 am a Welcome to Country will be hosted as marchers gather at the corner of Ann and Brunswick streets.

This will be followed by a welcome from Brisbane Pride president, Bec Johnson.

At 9:40 am Leeane Enoch MP, Minister for Communities and Housing and Minister For the Arts and Digital Economy of Queensland will speak.

This will be followed by a performance from Pride Queens, Kim Schotte & Thin Lizzi.

Marchers will still gather at the corner of Ann and Brunswick streets and begin marching at 10 am.

Participants will also be asked to wear masks for this year’s event.

From here they will march together down Brunswick St to join the Fair Day celebrations at New Farm Park.
