We are glad that the coronavirus crisis has passed so much that we have not had to give up the traditional onset festival on Střelecký Island! However, this year's event will be held in a intimate spirit. We respect measures against the spread of COVID-19 and, in addition, it is appropriate to symbolically return to the jubilee 10th year activist roots of the LGBT + movement. We didn't invite world stars to the opening of Prague Pride, but Czech names that have something to say. This year's line up is our contribution to the wave of resistance to oppression minorities, which is currently moving the world.

One year after the round anniversary of the Stonewall riots, we are turning our eyes again to what is happening in the United States American. With systemic racism against people other than white skin and homo / transphobia, v Today we are also struggling in the Czech Republic. We want to say together NO to racism and hate speech against any minorities in a climate in which feminism, equality and sensitive and kind approach to others. In the music program, therefore, we emphasize diversity performers:

Singer and rapper from Prague with roots in the Caribbean. A distinctive, energetic and wild artist performed in Israel, the USA, Germany and the Netherlands. In 2018, she won an export competition with her EP #Sunbeam Czeching Radio Wave. A year later, the Metronom festival called it the most progressive act in the Czech Republic scene. Her style carries elements of harsh London grime, RnB, neo-soul, trap, but also pop music. In my music deals with interpersonal relationships, politics and self-confidence.
