    Help Send Trans Pride Australia to Mardi Gras 2023

    Our World Pride float allows others to dream of being themselves as we gather in all of our gender diversity and amplify our authentic and genuine selves out to the wider world. Our float entry turns this vision in to reality through the Gender Kaleidoscope.

    The Gender Kaleidoscope is a creative representation of trans resiliance, adaptability and community. Just as one turn of a kaleidoscope changes your perspective, so too can the trans community. We are adaptable change makers, envisioning new patterns, and gathering multiple unique and individual dreams and amplified through fractured light, shining on the world.

    But as a 100% volunteer organisation we need your help to make this vision a reality! We are seeking funding for our the float vehicle, lighting, signage, audio equipment. Any remaining funds will be donated to TPA to continue our workshops, meet ups and advocacy work.
