SpringOUT is Canberra’s only pride festival. Held in November each year, it is a month-long pride festival that celebrates Australia’s most LGBTIQ-friendly city and its LGBTIQ community in all its fabulous diversity. Our objectives are to: * provide a vehicle for LGBTIQ individuals and groups to express, affirm and celebrate their pride and highlight the contribution they make to the cultural fabric of the Canberra region; * promote a broader message of positivity, diversity and acceptance; * integrate the SpringOUT festival into the wider cultural and social profile for residents of the Canberra region, as well as the broader tourism market; * reaffirm a sense of community for individuals and groups who may otherwise be marginalised; and * provide educational, cultural and creative spaces that encourage free expression.
