Architects with PRIDE celebrates 2023 WorldPride and Mardi Gras Festival


Architects with PRIDE brings together the LGBTQI+ communities of Australia’s built environment industry to celebrate the 2023 WorldPride and Mardi Gras Festival. 

Brahman Perera, Lucian Hicks, Stephen Todd and Anna Brown are panellists at Queer Career.

An initiative launched by SJB, bringing together 12 other studios and the Australian Institute of Architects, Architects with PRIDE have curated a program of four events over WorldPride that everyone can get involved with. 

This collective initiative, supported by some of the most prominent studios such as Carter Williamson, Bates Smart, COX and Hassell among others, is about enabling the A&D community to march hand in hand with the LGBTQI+ communities at the occasion of colourful and unforgettable events.
