“It was incredible to see the outpouring of support from the local community,” Baulkham said in a press release.

“Our challenge for 2020 is to try and make Pride even bigger and better.

“Pride is all about inclusivity and acceptance. It’s not about ‘us versus them,’ but celebrating and creating a world where all can be their true selves regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.”
