Prague Pride LIVE
More than 400 pride festivals have been canceled around the world this year, including the biggest ones such as Pride in London, Vienna Pride, New York City Pride and Amsterdam Pride ... Even Thessaloniki Pride, which was supposed to be associated with the EuroPride event this year 2020.
In Prague, we decided not to cancel the festival. For many LGBT + people in the Czech Republic, this is the only event where they can feel safe and on their own. Unlike everyday life - according to the latest FRA (European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights) survey, 59% of LGBT + people in the Czech Republic are not detached and hide their sexual orientation.
The leitmotif of this year's festival is "Pride LIVE" - everyone has the opportunity to participate in the program, from anywhere.
We took the restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity. We will use online technologies to connect the entire Czechia. The Prague Pride festival will literally become a nationwide event that everyone will be able to enjoy - whether live at one of more than 100 events, or through a live interactive Pride Stream program, which they can watch at home on the couch or in the garden with friends.
