Up to 40,000 expected at Melbourne's Pride March on Sunday!

Seventeenth annual LGBT Pride March is for ‘rights issues that remain untouched’!
 
Victoria Pride March 2011
On Sunday 30,000 to 40,000 people are expected to march for LGBT rights in Melbourne, including the world’s first openly intersex mayor Tony Briffa, Victoria MP Clem Newton-Brown and police chief commissioner Ken Lay.
The march will start with the traditional dykes on bikes followed by representatives from 120 different organisations including the Department of Transport, Ambulance Victoria, Bisexual Alliance, Australian Sex Party, Sex Workers of Victoria, Melbourne University Queer Department, local high schools, sports groups, Melbourne Queer Film Festival, Acceptance Gay Catholics, Metropolitan Community Church Melbourne, Jewish Lesbian Group of Victoria, Greek and Gay and People Living with HIV/AIDS Victoria.
Pride March Victoria has been organised in Melbourne since 1995 and acts and an unofficial finale of Midsumma celebration of queer culture. Midsumma’s CEO Adam Lowe told Gay Star News that the march is distinct from Sydney’s Mardi Gras march, because it's deliberately not a parade. ‘They're aren't any fancy coloured floats or dancing boys or dancing girls,’ said Lowe. ‘It's much more about holding the banner of your organisation and standing up for the rights issues that remain untouched.’
