The Broiges Dyke

I saw my dear friend Alex Nissen at Pride March last Sunday.  She was overjoyed to catch up after having been in Israel for quite some time.  She also told me she was very angry and although she didn’t look angry, she was boiling on the inside.

I took this photo of her, perhaps not the best I’ve ever taken, but the message is there.  She’s a broiges dyke.  If you want to know the story, ask her.  She’ll tell you.

Melbourne’s Pride March 2011

Last Sunday was the 16th annual Pride March in St Kilda.  Melbourne’s weather started out a little rainy and overcast, but cleared in time for the parade, leaving an abundance of blue skies and sunshine.

Behind-the-scenes magic was performed by Colin Krycer, back with a vengeance after missing the prior year’s parade due to an appointment with a heart surgeon.

Pride March celebrates the diversity and under the umbrella of the Australian GLBTIQ Multicultural Council marched a diverse array of cultural organisations.
