Pride London celebrated a milestone today as the last country in the European Union announced it will be holding an LGBT pride event this year. Dúhový (Rainbow) PRIDE will take place in Bratislava on 22nd May 2010 – the very first event of this kind in Slovakia. More details of the event will follow, but it is expected that visitors, politicians and campaigners from across the world will join Slovaks in celebration. Their website at http://www.duhovypride.sk/en/ gives more details.
Romana Schlesinger, spokesperson for the event said:
"Rainbow PRIDE Bratislava 2010 is an important step towards the visibility of lesbian and gay people in the public space. PRIDE is celebration of who we are, our identities, our presence and our civic participation in Slovak society. PRIDE is also a march for true equality for LGBT people with legal recognition for same-sex couples and the possibility for adoptions and assisted reproduction."
Paul Birrell, Chair of Pride London, and Regional Director for InterPride (the International Pride Organizers Assocation) added:
"This really is fantastic news! There are still so many countries around the world where it is illegal to be lesbian or gay, let alone hold a pride event. It is shameful that even in Europe there have, up until now, been countries where it hasnt been possible to celebrate pride. There continues to be opposition and violence at some events, such as Sofia and Belgrade, but Slovakia is sending a strong message that no country in Europe is a pride free zone!"
