In conjunction with a new resident who has been extremely active in the gay rights movement, Homestyle decided to participate in the in the 25th anniversary of Pride March. Staff, family and friends from Homestyle’s Point Cook Manor, Melville Grange and Amaroo Gardens took part, proudly brandishing the Homestyle Banner.
Commencing at 11am on Saturday 2 February, the Midsumma Pride March saw approximately 55,460 people gather on the streets of St Kilda to celebrate gender and sexual diversity. Marching from Ian Johnson oval, and along Fitzroy Street to Catani Gardens, people of all ages came together with their family, friends and partners to enjoy the festivities. Thousands of promotional tattoos and flags were handed out among the crowds, bringing awareness to Homestyle’s stance on issues of equality and inclusion for all.
The atmosphere was fantastic, and the event was thoroughly enjoyed by those who attended. Homestyle intends to continue to provide support for its LGBTI residents, staff and families by participating in the annual Midsumma Pride March on an annual basis.
