After last year’s attempt at Pride Week — which could’ve only been described as an utter fiasco — the team at UniQ Victoria have come up with an absolutely stellar programme for this year’s week, which starts on 23 July.
The programme kicks off with a queer quiz night at the Cambridge Hotel, and includes a whole range of fabulous events including a self-defence class, open mic night, a diversity forum, and the return of the legendary Traffic Light Party at the Burgundy Room on Friday, 27 July.
However, the two biggest highlights are the afternoon tea with American Ambassador David Huebner on Wednesday, 25 July, and a formal brunch and panel discussion on Saturday, 28 July also featuring Huebner and Freedom to Marry’s Evan Wolfson. Huebner is the first openly gay ambassador in Obama’s administration, and is also legal counsel for GLAAD.
It looks to be one of the best Pride Weeks organised by UniQ VIctoria in a number of years — well done to the team there!
