Pride Assembly

A spirit of collaboration and solidarity.

Brighton Grammar’s Pride Assembly on 17 April was a vibrant celebration of diversity and inclusion. It featured guest speakers from Melbourne Grammar’s Pride Alliance, BGS and MGS First Football captains and Brighton Grammar’s own diversity and inclusion student leaders.

The assembly aimed to promote understanding, acceptance, and support for the LGBTQIA+ community within the school and beyond, particularly within the football community, before Brighton Grammar and Melbourne Grammar clashed on Saturday for the annual Pride Round match.

The guest speakers from Melbourne Grammar’s Pride Alliance shared their inspiring insights regarding pride, highlighting the importance of creating a safe and inclusive environment for everyone. Their presence underscored the spirit of collaboration and solidarity among Brighton Grammar and Melbourne Grammar in fostering a more inclusive society.

Brighton Grammar’s annual Pride Assembly allows students, staff, and the wider community to come together and show their support for LGBTQIA+ rights. The assembly helps to foster a sense of belonging and acceptance and sends a powerful message that Brighton Grammar is a place where everyone is valued and respected, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Pride Assembly not only raises awareness about LGBTQ+ issues but also sends a powerful message of support to LGBTQIA+ students, staff, and families.
