À propos de l'événement

It's PRIDE MONTH! and yes we are ready to celebrate! This time is important to all of us, to be louder, more visible and to spread more love!

PRIDE is a movement, and a reminder of the fights for LGBTIQ+ rights and equality.

We celebrate more than just rainbows and glitter, we celebrate progress!

On July 9th on the day of the Equality March organised by PRIDE LUXEMBOURG, we will march in solidarity for everyone who has been a victim of discrimination, violence, and for those who have lost their lives fighting for the rights we have today.

This year, for organisational purposes we are organising our QUEER BLOC with @Centre Cigale, Uniqueers, the Pink Ladies and the Pink Gents.

Invite all your friends, bring your rainbows and flags, and come as you are. #QueerAsFuck and of cours Proud and Loud

When: 9 July 2022 Meeting Point: 12.30 @Parking Aloyese Meyer (Esch-sur-Alzette) Parking Aloyse Meyer, 4335 Esch an der Alzette

***************************************** By PRIDE LUXEMBOURG

A central element of a Pride has of course always been the Pride Parade. Since 2015, the stage programm at the street festival starts every year with the arrival of the parade at the town hall square in Esch-sur-Alzette. But what is the parade all about?

Since the beginning of the Pride movement in the aftermath of the Stonewall Uprising in 1969, Pride marches have been the channeling of the LGBTIQ+ community’s demands for acceptance and legal equality. The origin is basically political in nature. Thus, since the beginning of these marches, the demands of the community have been communicated to the public in the form of banners and signs by the participants. A Pride March is also about the visibility of a queer minority within society: while being „different“ was a taboo in social life and living out one’s sexual or gender identity was even punishable, queer culture only took place in secret. The Pride March puts faces to an anonymous mass and thus shares individual life stories. The message: come and show who you really are!

The Pride March is also a way for non-LGBTIQ+ people (so-called allys), organisations, parties and institutions to show their support and solidarity to the queer community and thus carry the concerns of LGBTIQ+ people into society at large.

To underline the political character of this march, the parade in Luxembourg has been held under the name Equality March since 2015
