LGBT and Pride events in Australia are not taking place in some sort of Pride month Australia. On the contrary, the events are spread over several months, all of which are during Australian summer.

The largest countries of Oceania: Australia and New Zealand are super LGBTQ+ friendly and especially large cities, like Sydney, have a blooming LGBT scene.

When visiting lesbian and gay pride events in Australia and New Zealand, you can expect a warm and colourful welcome and a festive athmosphere!

Lesbian and gay pride in Australia is often called Mardi Gras (not to be confused with other events elsewhere in the world). Mardi Gras Australia usually refers to the LGBTQ+ pride event in Sydney, but visitors sometimes refer to the other pride events as Mardi Gras as well!
