Rainbow Champions

From high-profile figures to grass-roots change-makers, Sydney WorldPride will be celebrating 45 influential figures from across Australia’s diverse LGBTQIA+ extended family. These 45 Rainbow Champions represent the 45 years since the first Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, which took place on 24 Junio 1978. 

Each Rainbow Champion has been chosen for their contributions to Australian LGBTQIA+ community and culture. For the rest of the year, we will make our way around Australia to meet all the Rainbow Champions. Subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates.
