About Pride March Adelaide
Pride Marches around the world celebrate the courage, solidarity, resilience, creativity, history, and contribution of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ+) people and their allies.
Adelaide’s first Pride March was held in 1973 when homosexuality was still illegal. The 40th anniversary of that first Pride March was celebrated in 2013 with an exhibition and program of events based at the State Library of South Australia.
Adelaide’s second Pride March was held 30 years after the first in 2003. Since then Pride March Adelaide has grown to become one of the biggest, best loved events on the Adelaide community calendar.
Everyone who supports queer people and their communities is welcome to join in.
Pride March Adelaide is organised by a committee of volunteers coordinated by Eric Kuhlmann. Other members of the committee include Claire Gurry, Glen Smith, Paul Cinneididh, Richard Boyle, Margie Fischer, Brenden Cooper, Laurence Nobes, Kate Toone, Jimmy Wood, and Neil Clegg. If you are interested in joining the committee or attending a committee meeting, please contact us.
On the day of the march the committee relies heavily on help from additional volunteers. Volunteer roles on the day include marshaling community groups, driving vehicles, carrying the Pride March banner, and handing out information to participants and spectators. If you are interested in volunteering on the day please contact us - we would love to hear from you!
