Rural Pride is an LGBTQIA+ pride festival run by Keep Talking. This is its second year running and we are looking at having it as big as possible. This year Keep Talking will be collaborating with community organisations and the Darwin Pride Committee to educate people about the LGBTQIA+ community, celebrate this community and raise funds for an organisation supporting the young people of Katherine.
This year we are looking at the theme of Together We Are Stronger which will involve promoting connectedness and building strong relationships with people in the community to lessen any animosity between different community groups in Katherine.
Event dates haven’t been confirmed for each of the events we are looking at running but people should be able to see the events as we release the running sheet closer to the date on Facebook, in the newspaper and on posters and flyers put together and distributed by Keep Talking.
