WorldPride Harbour Bridge walk

The WorldPride Bridge walk is the first Pride March in the Southern Hemisphere.

Entry was by ballot with a long waiting list but the event continues throughout the day on the pedestrian walkways.

Marchers dressed up and waved rainbow flags while the iconic Rainbow Serpent from the Mardi Gras parade also weaved its way across the bridge.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese said the march celebrated diversity.

“A bridge symbolises bringing people together. And this is about bringing together the Australian community, celebrating diversity.

“Also acknowledging that around the world, at WorldPride, that many people still suffer because of who they are, because of their sexuality.

“This is a great global city. And we benefit from the diversity that’s here in this great city. And we’re celebrating that today.”
