Soon it will be time to march as a group of loud, proud, bisexual+ people down the streets of Saint Kilda, being visible (for a change), and showing off our community.
This year we are marching with the Melbourne Bisexual Network and hope to have a huge turn out. Some tips to make the event successful for all of us are below. Please note the new start time of 11am. We will be meeting from 9am onwards. Further details about our marching order will be provided in late January.
