Event Description

Join the spectacular act of unity that is Melbourne’s Midsumma Pride March!

Parade, pride and party come together once a year in Melbourne's iconic march celebrating solidarity in gender and sexuality diversity. 

 

As VCOM has been a Melbourne icon since 1957 it’s time we did our bit to support the LGBTIQA community, and as an inclusive club we are delighted to announce that we will be participating in the Melbourne Midsumma Pride March.

This much loved public event is managed by Midsumma in conjunction with the Victorian Government, City of Melbourne and various local governments, and this is its 25th year!

 

Please RSVP early as there are quite a few hoops to jump through...when you do RSVP as ‘Going’ can you please add in the Comments section what colour Vespa you intend to ride.

 

Info will be added here as it becomes available for- 

 

  • Registration of bike and rider with Victoria Police 
  • Drug and alcohol testing on the day
  • Helmets are compulsory 
  • No hooning rules
  • Marshalling area, times and briefing
  • Heat management
  • Bike decorations and tips
  • Post ride parking and debrief
  • Pride March celebrations at Catani Gardens 

 

Our Pride March presence will be to ride as pairs in ‘rainbow’ formation, so we’ll need all the bright Vespas out there to make the day a success!

Orange

Yellow

Green 

Blue

Purple

Brown/other

White & Black 

(And yes, I do know that rainbows don’t have black or white)

 

Please note that only registered vehicles and drivers approved by Victoria Police will be allowed to participate. 

 

If you’re thinking - Is this is the ride for me?

Ask yourself what did you vote for in the Same Sex Marriage Plebiscite – then that’s your answer.

In order to speed things up, I've managed to shortcircuit the rego process - email me the following...at gail.veal@gmail.com 

Bike rego

Your licence details - DOB, full name, address, expiry date and any conditions ( I wear glasses/contacts - so that's a condition)

Let's rev things up!
