My first Pride March for five years, and I’m glad to say it’s still going very strong, despite being comprehensively rained on.
Our Greens contingent, though not our largest I’ve seen, was still lively and we got heaps of cheers, walking under our All Love is Equal banner. And we had the most parliamentarians – Adam Bandt, Sue Pennicuik and Greg Barber.
So glad we were all there – it’s a major event for the year for the Greens, the only parliamentary party really standing for human rights.
Social worker; refugee advocate; environmental activist. National Director of Repower Health and President, AASW Victorian Branch; mum of two. Ran six times as the Greens candidate for the federal seat of Batman, former International Secretary of the Australian Greens; former Co Convenor of the Victorian Greens. But I'm no longer with the party.
