About Sydney WorldPride 2023

WorldPride is a global Pride celebration that happens every few years in a different city. Sydney WorldPride will take place in February-March 2023, and will include a wide range of arts and cultural events across Greater Sydney which reflect the diversity of our LGBTQIA+ communities. This will include an opening ceremony, a First Nations Gathering Space, a Human Rights Conference, a Pride March, a closing ceremony and a party on Sydney’s iconic Bondi Beach.

We are currently developing our new Disability Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP), to help ensure we produce an accessible and inclusive event for everyone.

We value the expertise and lived experience of members of our community. That’s why we’re seeking your input to help us shape our event and create a set of priorities through this survey.

This survey should take less than 15 minutes to complete. We will ask you questions about your general observations around access and inclusion for arts and cultural events and your ideas for how we might put access and inclusion into practice for our event.

Our DIAP will be follow legislation and government policy guidelines and will be informed by internal and external consultation. These will ensure we gather knowledge, experiences and priorities from our community and other stakeholders with disability.

Disability is defined in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities to include physical, mental, intellectual and sensory impairments. However, it can be more useful to think of the barriers that people with disability face, including physical, communication, social, economic and attitudinal barriers – and what we all need to put in place to remove these barriers.

All survey responses are anonymous, and optional, and we encourage you to be honest with your feedback. If you feel you don’t know enough to comment on a particular section, please answer as best you can or leave that section blank.

Please click on the "OK" button to continue.

We appreciate your feedback, which will help shape our new Plan and lead us to a more inclusive event!
