Midsumma, Melbourne's homosexual festival, started in Melbourne on Saturday 12 January with a Street Party. This festival, which promotes homosexuality, includes a number of public events as well as arts and theatre activities and concludes on 3 February.
The main 'public' events are:
Pride March (20 Jan, 5pm)
Carnival (3 Feb, 11am - 6 pm followed by Dance party 6 pm - 11.30 pm).
- The Police Commissioner, Christine Nixon, is planning to march with police, in uniform, in the Pride March. They will be on FULL PAY!

- Please pray that this festival will not influence the city; that God will protect Melbourne and vulnerable young people and that those caught up in the homosexual lifestyle will be set free.
- There is a lot of MONEY associated with large crowd figures - that is why they inflate them! We plan to count the crowd figures again this year. Last year the 'official estimates' for the Pride March went down by 20,000 people!
