Event details

Deakin students, staff, friends and families - join us for Pride March 2018, taking place on Sunday 28 January in St Kilda, Melbourne.

We are delighted that the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Jane den Hollander, will be again be marching alongside the Deakin LGBTIQ+ Community. Having the VC march with us again in 2018 sends a strong message to the Deakin and wider community that Deakin supports our LGBTIQ staff and students.

Close to 100 Deakin marchers took part last year - let's make Deakin's presence even bigger and better for 2018!

Register your interest now and we will keep you updated with all the details in the lead up to the event. Rainbow coloured Deakin t-shirts will be available to marchers (subject to availability), as well as rainbow flags and rainbow tasselled mortar boards.

The Pride March will kick off at 2 pm with a pre-march procession by Dykes on Bikes followed by thousands of marchers. We will have some pre-march refreshments and a post-march gathering at Catani Gardens.
