Luxury cruise line Cunard’s centenary around the world voyage made a spectacular stop in Sydney Harbour yesterday, coinciding with Sydney WorldPride. The occasion was marked with a stunning drone show featuring 100 drones creating a colourful Pride-themed display in the sky.
Partnering with The Great Love Campaign and the British High Commission, Cunard’s Queen Victoria was the centre of attention as a glitter of drag queens flanked by six Cunard bellhops posed for a spectacular photo shoot on board, featuring the iconic Sydney Opera House in all its Pride splendour.
But the celebration didn’t end there. In the afternoon, Cunard, along with The Great Love Campaign and the British High Commission, hosted over 100 of Australia’s leading business and tourism figures at a Pride in Business Afternoon Tea, celebrating companies committed to diversity and LGBTQIA+ rights in their workplaces.
The GREAT Love Campaign aims to promote love, diversity, and inclusion in all aspects of life, from business to social spheres. The campaign’s global relaunch will be celebrated aboard Cunard’s Queen Victoria, highlighting the cruise line’s commitment to creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for all guests.
As we celebrate WorldPride in Sydney, it’s crucial to remember that the fight for equality is far from over. Discrimination and prejudice against the LGBTQIA+ community are still prevalent in many parts of the world. However, events like Cunard’s celebration of WorldPride with The GREAT Love Campaign and the British High Commission demonstrate the progress we’ve made and inspire us to continue fighting for a world where love and acceptance prevail.
We encourage everyone to join The GREAT Love Campaign and pledge to promote diversity and inclusion in their workplace and communities. Together, we can create a world where everyone feels welcome, accepted, and loved.
