Date: Sunday Feb 2, 2020, 10:30 am

Rotary Prahran & friends from District 9800 were the first Rotarians in Australia (& the second country in the world) to march in Pride in support of our LGBTIQ members & friends, showing the public that Rotary is very much committed to diversity & inclusion at every level.
