Welcome To SpringOUT 2014

Posted by: on Oct 24, 2014 | No Comments

Canberra Pride presents SpringOUT, a celebration of queer culture in the Canberra Region.

In 2014 SpringOUT turns 15 and spans the whole of November. In addition to signature events such as Fairday and Bushdance, there are many opportunities for people of all ages to meet, watch, learn, flirt, bake, dance, swim, listen, discuss, network, sing, inquire, eat, drink and soak in the best of the ACT’s queer culture.

We acknowledge and thank our major supporters: Telstra, Her Canberra, The Street Theatre, Typeyard Design & Advertising and FUSE Magazine for their partnership and support in celebrating queer culture in the ACT.

We look forward to seeing you throughout the festival and wish you a Happy SpringOUT 2014.
