The biggest ever Jews of Pride contingent will come together at this year’s Midsumma Pride March in Melbourne.

Last year’s march

Over ten supportive groups from the Melbourne Jewish community will comprise Jews of Pride as we proudly stand up for and celebrate equality for all LGBTIQ+ people.

This year’s march will be held on Sunday, February 2.

In 2018 Jews of Pride was awarded the “Most Fabulous” group in Pride March.

Last year the collective energy of 100 people created an unsurpassed Jewish presence in Pride March.

This year, after months of planning, Jews of Pride returns with renewed enthusiasm, a fantastic fresh look, a bigger sound system and refreshed playlist, and our largest ever number of groups from the Jewish community.

Participating organisations include:

  • Aleph Melbourne
  • Australian Jewish Democratic Society
  • Habonim Dror
  • Jewish Care Victoria
  • Jewish Lesbian Group of Victoria
  • Keshet
  • National Council of Jewish Women of Australia (Vic)
  • SKIF
  • Temple Beth Israel
  • Zionist Federation of Australia
  • and more!

Aleph has invited the entire Jewish community to join Jews of Pride and celebrate Jewish trans and gender diverse, intersex, same-sex attracted people, rainbow families and allies, in the most fabulous, dynamic and festive contingent, as we pump out upbeat music and dance our way along Fitzroy Street.

Be part of the fun and meet us at the marshalling area, corner of Lakeside Drive and Fitzroy Street between 10 and 10:30 am for the 11 am march start. Jews of Pride is in Wave G, position 16.

    Interesting I wonder Queers for Palestine and the Dykes who banned Jews with Star of David in their LGBT rights festival in Chicago will be joining this lot .

    Is there such a pro -Zionist GAy / LGBT activist group if so never heard of it ?

    I notice amongst the mainly hard left / left groups mentioned some of which join Palestinian lobby groups who go to Canberra to lobby for Palestinians and against The Zionists in particular.
    Times have changed that’s for sure is it any wonder Israel is loosing the battle of minds in this country .
    I guess another group that joins these hard leftists it’s new head made it very clear he would welcoming all and sundry under their tent ( of course that would not include anyone on the Other extreme side of the political spectrum ) he wasn’t kidding about moving the ZFA .
