Pride WA

Eligibility and Conditions of entry

Pride WA’s Pride Parade is a platform for LGBTQIA+ communities to celebrate who they are and to communicate a message relevant to the LGBTQIA+ communities, as well as for non-LGBTQIA+ organisations to communicate a message of support for LGBTQIA+ people.
All entries must be an accurate representation of the details supplied in their application form.
All entries must not be discriminatory, homophobic, biphobic, transphobic, racist, sexist, incite hatred or breach any defamation law. Entries will not be accepted from organisations who have demonstrated any of the above in previous Parades or in their general business.
All entries must meet the messaging, operational, safety and sponsorship guidelines set out by Pride WA. Pride WA reserves the right to refuse participation from entries that have breached Parade regulations in previous years.
Please note that the Parade may be cancelled for health/COVID-19 reasons by the relevant authorities without notice. Pride WA is working closely with the relevant authorities and agencies to keep entrants informed, as promptly as possible, if the Parade is not allowed to proceed.
