Prague Pride 2013 – Keep on Growing!

Prague Pride returns for year 3! It all started with a vision – Prague Pride Civic Association is a voluntary, non-governmental, non-political, non-profit organizations.
Its aims are mainly promoting tolerant civil society, the fight against
homophobia and increase public awareness of gay, lesbian, bisexual and
transgender community in the country.

The association was founded in 2010 and its main activity is organizing a warm human rights Prague Pride festival in August.  August 12-18, 2013  this year.

In just 2 years Prague Pride has grown into the
biggest LGBT festival of the former communist countries of central and eastern
, with 40.000 visitors in 2012. It has
shown that Prague is the most liberal capital of the region, so it was no
surprise when Lonely Planet listed Prague among the top 10 of friendliest
cities to gays and that Prague Pride has recently been listed among Europe’s 10
best prides on
Pride is proud to act as an exemplary beacon of openness and tolerance for its
neighbours in the region.

Passport Magazine wrote, “Indeed, the rainbow people are now more visible than they’ve ever been
in picturesque Prague. The city’s first two LGBT Pride events in 2011
and 2012 have done wonders to turn what was previously a rather
scattered and underground gay community into a vibrant and cohesive
whole. “Before Pride 2011, there were basically just numerous bars and clubs concentrating only on their own businesses,” explains Prokopík, founder of a local tour operator, Prague4Gay.
“Alongside them were a few ‘islands’ of projects and organizations
struggling for recognition and support from the community. The
organizers of Prague Pride managed to bring them together. During Pride
the individual ‘islands’ merged into one community, recognizing and
supporting each other for the first time.”

Prague is very affordable since they still are NOT on the euro.
