Pride Parade makes triumphant return to streets of Northbridge

Thousands of people turned out in support of this spectacular parade and to celebrate our rainbow community, back at home in Northbridge

Thousands of people lined the streets of Northbridge last night in support of the 2022 Pride Parade.

The parade, now in its 31st year, is the one of the iconic features of the month-long PrideFEST, and last night marked its return to Northbridge.

City of Perth Lord Mayor Basil Zempilas said it was great to welcome the parade back to its traditional home and to see people lining Aberdeen, William and James streets, as well as Russell Square in support of the LGBTQIA+ community.

“Thousands of people turned out in support of this spectacular parade and to celebrate our rainbow community, back at home in Northbridge,” Mr Zempilas said.

“Congratulations to Pride WA for organising this wonderful event which brings great colour and joy to our City of Light.”

The City of Perth provided a $210,000 grant towards the event.
