Due to the high COVID case numbers in Melbourne and the contagiousness of the Omicron variant, Bisexual Alliance Victoria has taken the sad decision to withdraw from Pride March 2022. Our aim is to keep our communities safe, and although outdoor events are safer than indoor events, the inability to easily socially distance at all times during Pride March, increases risk to our community.
If you still wish to march at Pride, the Melbourne Bisexual Network are currently planning to still participate. You can find out more at https://www.facebook.com/events/297665038790233 where they will keep you briefed regarding any changes made by the Victorian Government or Midsumma. You will need to register with them as all groups have an upper limit of participants.
Pride March is scheduled for 6 February 2022.
Midsumma requires that all event staff, volunteers, and participants, as per the State Government requirements, to be vaccinated, or have an exemption, to participate in the event.
Upon entry to Ian Johnson Oval, all Pride March participants will be required to check-in and show valid proof of Covid-19 vaccination status, or eligible proof of medical exemption.
This year we're keeping it simple - dressing in Bi+ colours, holding signs and banners, and sending the love through waving and chanting. Check out Midsumma's official page if you want to know more. Please message us directly with any accessibility requests.
