For the first time in 9 years, on 10 August 2019 it rained on us throughout the march. We knew it was bound to happen at some point, and it happened this year! We are however immensely happy that the rain could not stop the participants to the biggest gay pride in Central and Eastern Europe. According to estimates, there were 30,000 in the parade.

Prague Pride is joining the vast family of prides who will this year reflect the 50th anniversary of Stonewall riots and celebrate the achievements of the LGBT+ movement. As the Czech Republic had a specific LGBT history due to the Iron Curtain, we will focus on the legacy of the past, relevance for today and our responsibility for future generations. Prague Pride 2019 will take place from 5 till 11 August, the Pride Parade on Saturday 10 August.

Yasmin Benoit is an alternative model, blogger and actress from Great Britain and currently one of the main faces of the asexual community world-wide. Early in 2019 she initiated a spontaneous social-media campaign #ThisIsWhatAsexualLooksLike challenging stereotypes about asexuality and thanks to her activism asexuality is gaining greater visibility in media and in the LGBTQ+ community.

Veřejná ochránkyně práv ve spolupráci se spolkem Prague Pride provedla vloni na podzim jedno z nejrozsáhlejších dotazníkových šetření mezi LGBT lidmi v České republice. Jeho závěry byly oznámeny 17. května, v Mezinárodní den boje proti homofobii, bifobii a transfobii. Ombudsmanka připojila i konkrétní doporučení, jak situaci LGBT osob v Česku zlepšit.

 

This year’s week 6-12 August was really loaded with events. The Prague Pride festival took place and it brought several significant novelties and historic records. We wish to thank everyone who contributed to it, whether as an organizer, volunteer or participant. Without you all, Prague Pride would not have been the same! Let’s look back at some of the moments of the rainbow week.
