Today it starts the West Pride 2016, an LGBT festival held in Gothenburg, from the 8th to the 12th of June. You probably might have already seen how the city was being coloured everywhere by the rainbow flag, something that in many places of the world would still be impossible to believe.
Many things are organized these upcoming days in the city, from informative talks to celebrations, art, discussions, activism… You can see the whole program for the West Pride 2016 here: http://westpride.se/program
But also the University of Gothenburg participates as a proud partner of West Pride! You can read more about it here: http://www.gu.se/english/westpride
“As a university we strive for openness, diversity and discussion and it fits well with the ambitions of West Pride has to provide perspective, creating meeting places and arenas for knowledge, conversation and reflection. We organize a number of lectures and discussions on these subjects and of course participate in this year’s parade.”
You shouldn’t miss the events these days!
Let’s be proud of the city we live in! And let’s fight for equality everywhere else in the world, no matter your beliefs, your body, who you love, or who you are. We are all people, we are all the same 🙂
