February 24th would have been Stella Young's 35th birthday. What better time to join us in a celebration of Disability Pride by gathering at the Amphitheatre at Fed Square in the heart of Melbourne and dancing like nobody's watching. Bring your friends and lovers, bring your wheelchairs, canes, and assistance animals. Put on your brightest party loving clothing and celebrate. We want to remember the spirit of Stella who loved to dance, so be ready to join in and dance, boogie, pogo - whatever suits your mood. This is a free public event.
