Dust off those rainbow flags, sequins and sparkles Sydney, because the biggest queer festival of the year is here, and we’re celebrating with our most fun and shared ride option, Uber Pool.

Here at Uber, we believe that everyone – no matter how they identify – should have a safe space to travel with pride. That’s why, to celebrate the biggest LGBTQIA+ Australian festival of the year this weekend, we’re offering the opportunity to share a ride to and around festivities with queer icon G Flip. 

For one afternoon only on Saturday the 2nd March, the chart topper will be kick starting the rainbow party by travelling exclusively around the festival via Uber Pool. Equipped with a karaoke machine and all the rainbow vibes, G Flip’s pride ride will offer riders everything they need for the perfect festival pre-game. 

If you’ve got a karaoke classic you’re keen to share with the Hottest 100 hero, all you have to do is register your interest here and tell us why you’d love to be part of G Flip’s pride ride, to be in with the chance of riding along with the superstar in your Uber Pool.

G Flip said: “I’m so stoked to be back in Australia for Gay Christmas! It’s one of my favourite days of the year. I’m going to be hopping in a few Uber Pool rides on the day of the parade so stay safe, book an Uber Pool and hopefully we can hang out for a cheeky little ride. Happy rainbow festival beautiful humans!”

What’s more, for every Pool ride taken on Saturday 2nd March with G Flip, Uber will make a donation to Minus18, Australia’s champions for LGBTQIA+ youth.

But if you don’t get the chance to ride with G – no need to flip out, as we’re making it rain pride rides this weekend. To help everyone celebrate the Sydney festival with pride, we’re also shouting Pool rides to and from the festival on Saturday 2nd March, between 12pm- 10pm. Just order an Uber Pool trip to Sydney festival locations between 12pm- 10pm on the 2nd, and your trip will be covered, up to a value of $30.
