Regional Pride goes virtual this Saturday with PRIDE-SOLATION

Entertainment, Society & Culture

Damien Stevens-Todd joined Rachel and Dean for one last time on MAD Wednesday for Country Cousins, taking us through some of the amazing regional events for Victoria’s LGBTIQA+ communities.

One of those exciting events is Pride-solation, and we were joined by Claudia from Throne Harbour Country to find out all about it.

Pride-Solation is an Australian first. COVID-19 isolation has inspired 15 regional LGBTIQA_ organisations and community groups to come together online to celebrate their communities and pride in a one-off live streamed event highlighting the uniqueness of rural and regional Victoria and unify the community in Pride.

The organisations participating are, Koori Pride Network, OUTintheOPEN Festival Shepparton (Goulburn Valley Pride Inc.), Mallee Pride, Gippsland Pride Initiative, Wimmera Pride Project, Geelong Rainbow Festival (Geelong Rainbow Inc), Ballarat Frolic Festival, Castlemaine Pride, Trans and Gender Diverse Bendigo and Beyond, ChillOut Festival (Daylesford) and Thorne Harbour Country (part of Thorne Harbour Health) who will program health and wellbeing content with the event live-streamed on Facebook by LaNCE TV from 12-6pm AEST on Saturday 20th June – Each festival is programming content to highlight local artists and community members.
