Northbridge lit up with glitter and colour on Saturday night, 19 November, as Perth’s annual Pride Parade, a celebration of the LGBTI community, took to the streets. Marching through the centre of Northbridge, the party went into the night, with the theme Love Wins.
Faith groups joined the parade including Jews for Pride and Christians with Pride. A passionate group of Christians marched, mostly members from the Anglican Diocese of Perth or the Uniting Church WA.
Fr Peter Manuel, from St Andrew’s Anglican Parish Subiaco, said it was important for Christians to march in the parade to show their support for the LGBTI community.
“I think it’s important that we march here today to show the outside world, those who aren’t Christians as well as those who are Christians, that you can be a Christian and support Pride and same sex marriage,” he said.
