Alice Springs Pride Carnivale

Alice Springs Pride Carnivale_editorialPerformers, visitors and artists throughout the Northern Territory and Australia will converge on Alice Springs for the 2015 Pride Carnivale.

Now in its third year, the Alice Springs Pride Carnivale is an inspiring expression of our LGBTIQ community pride held in the heart of Central Australia, and will include a Family fair day, pride party, film night, workshops and forums. The event is Australia’s most remote celebration of the sexual and gender diversity across Central Australian communities and aims to promote social inclusion and challenge all forms of discrimination.

“The opening night art exhibition on Thursday 30 July will kicks off another great weekend celebrating diversity in Central Australia,” says Thea McDiarmid from the Pride Carnivale organising committee. “This year’s annual Alice Springs Pride Carnivale is crafted to include arts, performance and celebration in the centre of Australia.”

“Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and Indigenous Australians from the Northern Territory and beyond are the key focus of this year’s Pride Carnivale,” says committee member Barry Dallman. “And it all culminates with the Saturday Fair Day. It’s a family event running from 11am until 3pm with stage acts, stalls, food, entertainment and so much more.”

Alice Springs Pride Carnivale is the annual event in central Australia celebrating lesbian, gay, trans, intersex, queer, sister girl and brother boy diversity. For more information and complete programme, visit: for details.
