The rainbow flag will return to the Hobart Town Hall.

The flag will be flown for the duration of this year’s TasPride Festival and comes after a Hobart City Council move in 2017 to fly the flag until marriage equality was achieved in Australia

The festival will runs until January 21st with events in the Long Gallery, Salamanca Arts Centre; the Moonah Arts Centre and Hobart’s Waterfront.

TasPride Vice President Tracey Wing said that there are a number of program highlights for this years event.

 “This year Gavin Roach returns to Tasmania for the first time since 2013 with his latest show, Measure of a Man. This follows hugely successful seasons in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth.

Monique Brumby will also feature, after taking part in the Taste of Tasmania earlier this month.

She says thrilled to be playing the festival, just months after Marriage Equality became law

“With the recent change to the Australian Marriage Act to recognise same sex couples and acknowledging the distance we have travelled in Australia with regard to acceptance of diversity, it is a great thrill for me to be back in Tasmania to celebrate and share ideas with the wonderful Tasmanian LGBTI and broader community around ways to continue to build love and equality in our society,”
