Gay Pride Parade

A CROWD of more than 45,000 are marching through the heart of St Kilda in one of the largest Midsumma Pride marches in its 23 year history. 

Thousands of LGBTQIA Victorians and supporters braved the blistering sun to take part in the annual festival.

An extra 2,000 marchers registered for this year’s event and thousands more lined the streets to celebrate a historic year for the gay community with the passing of the marriage equality bill in December.

It was over 45 degrees celsius that day and my face was as red as a cherry tomato but I had to come out to experience the joy and love. So happy that gay marriage is now allowed in this country. Here are a couple shots I snapped with my film camera.
