Newcastle Pride

Newcastle Pride

Newcastle Pride is an inclusive, vibrant and fun not-for-profit Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ+) community-based organisation established in 2018. Newcastle Pride celebrates sexuality and gender diversity in Newcastle and the Hunter Region within and outside our community. We collaborate with others within our community and with the wider community to foster LGBTIQ+ Pride.

Our vision is to empower all LGBTIQ+ people to find their voice and be proud. We aspire to a safer, more inclusive future. For more information on how to support Newcastle Pride by becoming a member

Newcastle Pride Festival

The Newcastle Pride Festival is Newcastle Pride’s major initiative and is an exciting, glamorous and “out n’ proud” series of events that aims to showcase to locals and visitors that Newcastle is a city of diversity, culture and beauty, and promotes the Hunter Region’s natural and other assets. The Festival is an on-going annual event, bringing our community together in unity, so as to leave a legacy for LGBTIQ+ youth, and fostering a vibrant and supportive future community.

The 2021 Newcastle Pride Festival is Newcastle’s third LGBTIQ+ Pride Festival (Australia’s largest regional Pride Festival) and will be held August 12 – September 5.  For more information about the Festival and how to buy tickets
