Sydney WorldPride 2023 - EOI for Nominations Committee

We hope you're staying safe and well. In these challenging times it's vital to have something to look forward to. We're very excited as we begin work on our plans for 2023!


Last month we took an important step closer to making our plans a reality. Sydney WorldPride signed the official Licence agreement with InterPride (the International Association of LGBTI Pride Organisers) to host WorldPride Sydney2023. We are looking forward to working closely with InterPride in the coming years for the benefit of the Pride movement globally.


Sydney WorldPride also signed the MOU with Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras which sets the framework for how the organisations will work together in the coming years. These were significant milestones for Sydney WorldPride, and provide a great foundation for us to continue to plan toward 2023.


Thank you to NSW Government, City of Sydney and Tourism Australia for their wonderful support to get this phenomenal project to this stage.
