Championing LGBTIQA+ communities at Midsumma Carnival 2024


Published January 22 2024

So wonderful to come together with thousands of people at Midsumma Carnival 2024 yesterday to celebrate pride and support rainbow health with people who identify as LGBTIQA+ and allies. 

It was a fantastic day meeting new people and chatting about the services and initiatives we lead to support rainbow health, with face painting, rainbow merch, joyful energies and pictures with the selfie frame! 

Merri Health is a proud rainbow-accredited organisation that welcomes the LGBTIQA+ community to access our inclusive services. 

We believe in creating a safe space for people that identify as LGBTIQA+ who generally experience poorer mental and physical health and are less likely to access support or services due to fear of discrimination. Find out more information.

We also recognise the challenges and unique needs of LGBTIQA+ carers. Carer Gateway has tailored resources to help you in your caring journey. Call 1800 422 737 or visit for more information.

If you were at the festival and met our lovely staff members, please send us a picture or tag us on social media

Midsumma Festival will be ongoing from the 21st January to 11th February. Click here to find out what programs and activities are happening near you!
