2 min read

It's never too soon to start prepping. 

The year 2023 might be really far away but it can't come soon enough. 

Why? ‘Cause Sydney is hosting WorldPride in 2023, beating Montreal and Houston for the honour.

Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras took to social media to announce the news.

“Members of the worldwide InterPride network of Pride organisations voted between Sydney, Montreal and Houston as the host city for WorldPride 2023,” the organisation stated. 

“We won with 60% of the vote.”

“This is a major win for Sydney, Australia and the Asia Pacific region more broadly. Bringing WorldPride Down Under means we can celebrate and shine a spotlight on the unique challenges faced by the LGBTQI community in the region.”

“WorldPride is the Olympics of LGBTI events,” New South Wales MP Alex Greenwich stated, “and it’s coming to Sydney and the Southern Hemisphere for the first time.”

Translation of the above: everyone is bloody stoked.

The current plan for WorldPride 2023 is for it to coincide with the 45th anniversary of Mardi Gras. This is going to be the party of all parties. 

Get your glitter guns out, start your shopping, start designing - it's never too soon to start outfit planning and this is one celebration you'll definitely want to look a million bucks for. 

Copenhagen will be hosting WorldPride in 2021, kind of like a dress rehearsal IMO.
