Pride Month is an annual LGBTQIA+ pride celebration held every June. Around the World, events are held as a way of recognizing the achievements and influence of the LGBTQIA+ community. Why June? June signifies the commemoration of the Stonewall Riots that took place in 1969. Although issues of injustice and attitude remain, Pride Month has evolved and grown since the riots of 1969 and continues to raise awareness, improve societal attitudes and encourage inclusivity.

The Fringe is proud support and provide a platform for the LGBTQIA+ community both within our arts festival and year round.

In 2021 Adelaide Fringe LGBTQIA+ program stats:

  • 39% of grants were distributed to recipients who identified as LGBTQIA+
  • 21% of events included creatives who identified as LGBTQIA+
  • 9.7% of program contained LGBTQIA+ themes

In 2022 Adelaide Fringe will make it easier than ever to hit the Fringe: Queer. Look out for our LQBTQIA+ themed shows list.
