This year’s Prague Pride will parade through Prague Center on Saturday the 10th of August. The route will stay the same as previous years, with the starting point at Václavské Náměstí to Letná. The approximate number of participants is 30 thousand people celebrating the lives of the LGBTQIA+ community.
For the first time, the Petřín Tower will be lit in rainbow colors. The LGBTQ pride flag is about to fly Prague City Hall, too.
2019 is an iconic and historic year for SAGE and the LGBT community as it marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, known as the birth of the modern LGBT movement.
The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay (LGBT) community against a police raid that began in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. They are widely considered to constitute the most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States.
The carnival parade will go from Václavské Náměstí through the street Na Příkopě to náměstí Republiky, from there it will continue through Revoluční, Řásnovka, and Klášterská to Dvořákovo nábřeží. The parádě will walk through náměstí Curieových to Čechův bridge and after that up to the stairs to Letná, where in the past years, people could then enjoy a concert.
