Each year, for 44 years, nothing has stopped us from gathering to celebrate together, to call for change and to remember those who came before us.In 2022, despite the great uncertainty of what next year will look like, we will honour our commitment to continuing the legacy of delivering a Parade for the community. It is up to all of us to keep safe, healthy and well.

STAYING COVID-SAFE
We acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, who are the traditional owners of the land we work on. Always was, always will be Aboriginal Land.
