Adelaide's Pride March 2009

I was not able to attend last year's pride parade but this year, I made sure I was going to be part of it. I took a break from my studies and joined the crowd in Rundle Park with a few friends. Unfortunately, Steven was not there to join the event.

The turn out was humble but it was still fun. Compared to Sydney, most of the participants are sober and more family-oriented. Some brought their dogs. Several families had their kids with them. Some straight people also joined in.

I had to return to the library so I skipped the party but Steven and I will attend the Picnic in the Park.

It was a joyous event so I do not know why I did not see this on the news.

Dex, I don't know why the media does not cover the Pride March.
Maybe not until it is very large or there is the rumour of "an incident" that will attract attention.

Was a tad dissapointed in the turn up of this years March ~ and also that we were pushed on the out skirts of town. Alas like Kerry said - if the media doesn't cover it isn't going to get a decent turn out. Perhaps next year will be bigger and better
