Moment of Silence and Vigil – Post Pride March 2017, Cantani Gardens 

// January 29th, 2017 // Within Victoria

Post Pride March festivities at Catani Gardens today will see the introduction of a moment of silence and vigil performance, a new Pride March tradition that pays homage to all queer peoples who have suffered violence because of their gender or sexuality. For 2017, this will be performed by Deborah Cheetham AO, celebrated Yorta Yorta soprano, actor, composer and playwright. 

The Anti-Violence Project congratulates Midsumma on their initiative and asks all at Pride March to report homophobic and trans/bi-phobic harassment and prejudice motivated violence each and every time it occurs. Call police 000 and when safe contact the AVP http://antiviolence.info/report-violence
