TasPride has been around for 20 years. It began as a community support group in Hobart in 1992 but changed its name to TasPride in 2009.

Every November, TasPride produces the highly successful annual TasPride Festival – an event dedicated to celebrating, uniting and promoting the Tasmanian LGBTQI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex) community.

TasPride hosts cultural events throughout the year (including the Queens Ball in June) and promotes a wide range of activities produced by the many LGBTQI organisations in Tasmania – so if you are visiting the island, it is worth checking their website.
