Saturday on the 11th of June, we will once again gather thousands of people for our pride parade through the streets of Bergen. For many of us, the parade is the very highlight of pride, and an important day where our struggle for rights is highlighted and our freedom is celebrated!
Pride parades are a political celebration showcasing both the diversity of society and the right to love who you want and be who you are. Since the Stonewall uprising in 1969, which is considered the start of the modern movement for queer rights, pride parades have spread throughout the world, and today these parades move millions of people through thousands of cities around the world.
Parades create international communities, gives a sense of belonging and honor the history of the queer fight for rights, and make the still remaining struggles more visible in today’s society!
In 2019, more than 25,000 people participated in the Bergen pride parade, and after a three year-long wait, we look forward to being able to gather once again on 11 June!
