“The AFL is proud to be hosting this game, and in doing so we are saying to our community that we want to be part of change in Australia, […] Diversity and inclusion is essential to our game. We say ‘no matter who are, where you are from or who you love, we can all love footy’”
The first AFL Pride Match is contested by the Sydney Swans and Fremantle at Drummoyne Oval on Sunday, March 15 2015.
The march against the forced closures of Western Australia’s Aboriginal communities in Sydney today shut down the CBD for around an hour.

Ended with a concert and bonfire at The Block in Redfern. Raised hundreds and hundreds of dollars for WA’s communities, which will be sent over in the next few days.
