The Brisbane Pride Festival has confirmed this year’s Pride March will go ahead, after the festival’s big events were earlier postponed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Festival organisers announced last week Fair Day would instead move to the new date of Saturday, October 30.
And now Brisbane Pride has also confirmed the Pride March will also go ahead that day, with some changes.
Marchers will need to wear masks. They’ll gather as usual at the corner of Ann and Brunswick Streets, at Fortitude Valley.
But the march will then begin at 10am sharp, without the usual speeches.
The crowd will form “a massive sea of pride heading down Brunswick St into Fair Day at New Farm Park,” the committee explained.
Pride organisers want all marchers to register their attendance at the Brisbane Pride website here.

Last week, Brisbane Pride confirmed Fair Day would go ahead in compliance with Queensland COVID-19 restrictions to protect the health and safety of all punters.
Gates will open at the ticketed Fair Day event in New Farm Park from 10am on Saturday, October 30.
“We look forward to celebrating with all our LGBTIQ+ community members, families, groups, and organisations,” President Bec Johnson said.
“Together, let’s make this a safe Fair Day for all attendees.”
The new date for Fair Day falls during a long weekend, after Queensland moved the Ekka public holiday to Friday, October 29.
Tickets to Brisbane Pride Festival’s Fair Day are on sale via Eventbrite here.
