Castlemaine Pride 2019 – a celebration of diversity with an aim for equality

Posted in Latest News

On Sunday 28 April 2019, the Shire of Mount Alexander celebrated LGBTIQ+ diversity at Castlemaine Pride 2019 in the beautiful Castlemaine Botanic Gardens.  The day followed on from the inaugural Castlemaine Pride in 2018, that was founded to celebrate marriage equality secured earlier that year. In both years, the festival was supported by a range of organisations and businesses, including Castlemaine District Community Health, Castlemaine Health, the Daylesford ChillOut Festival, Switchboard Counselling Service and many more.

We enjoyed a live performance from Lady Funtime Dancers and day long entertainment from MAIN FM via their caravan at the event.  Along with the Mount Alexander Shire Council’s LGBTIQ+ Round Table and Castlemaine District Community Health’s Let’s Get Proud Project, CCH works towards equality and equity for all.
