Why should you be a TasPride member?
There are plenty of good reasons to support an organisation that aims to bring gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer community members (and our friends, families and supporters) together, to celebrate and promote all that is good about being GLBTIQ in Tasmania.
TasPride makes a real difference to lots of people, and membership is one way you can help to build and celebrate our community. We are a not-for-profit organisation and your membership fee goes straight back into bringing you the exciting, fun and inclusive TasPride Festival events that further strengthen our GLBTIQ community. The Tasmanian government, business and community sectors have an ever growing awareness of TasPride and show an increasing level of support for our community.
We like to think TasPride puts on the best parties!
Being a TasPride member is also lots of fun. Our signature parties, the Queens’ Ball and the Halloween Ball, are two nights out that you can pretty much guarantee that every queer in the state comes out of the woodwork for! As a member of TasPride you will get ticket discounts to these fabulous events and many other events throughout the TasPride Festival. We pride ourselves on hosting events that are safe, diverse, inclusive, engaging and affordable. You can dance yourself stupid, or find a quiet spot to make a new friend, or both.
The annual TasPride Festival, held each November, features amazing and diverse events, including films, quiz and bingo nights, performances, picnics, walks and talks, not to mention the smash-hit Pride Parade through the streets of Hobart.
Your membership fee pays for itself in discounts.
Being a TasPride member is about more than just discounts to events year round – but that certainly helps. Our membership fees are very reasonable, and the member discounts you’ll receive when attending all major TasPride events means that it really does pay for itself. As we might have already mentioned, we’re a not-for-profit, volunteer-run organisation who are here to put on events to bring our community, and our friends, families and supporters together.
