Melbourne group announces giant march for IDAHOT


Early birds are starting to announce IDAHOT 2016 events. As part of this, we got news from Stand Up Events a Melbourne based group which aims to gather a 5000-strong crowd to march against heteronormativity !
“Stand Up Events was conceived in early 2015 in a bid to confront the social prejudice that many members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer (LGBTIQ) community experience within the arena of Australian sport.
Through a range of participatory events we aim to provide a unique and powerful platform for people to show their support, express their concerns, and stand up for equality in a safe and fun environment.
Stand Up Event’s inaugural celebration, Move in May, kicks off in 2016 in support of International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.
Move in May is not a pride or demonstration march. It is an open-minded fun run that will involve inspirational speakers, a unique run, and a post-event celebration that caters for absolutely everyone!
The aim of Move in May is to welcome all members of the community, rainbow or otherwise, as a sign of solidarity within Australian society and its love of sport. This unique event is a running (and walking!) adventure. Following the completion of the Fun Run, a range of speakers, entertaining acts, food, drink and dancing will entertain the crowd for hours. Move In May is a space for celebration, awareness and awesomeness.
If you want to show the world that you stand up for equality, diversity and inclusion then this is the event for you!!
If you, your sporting team, your friends or family believe in this cause – show us on Instagram! Take a photo and show your support by tagging our page and hash tag @standupeventsmelbourne and #MoveInMayMelbourne.”
