LGBTQ rights are human rights. Many might take arranging a Pride festival for granted. This is, however, not the case everywhere. Arranging Pride festivals is a way to raise awareness for LGBTQ rights, one means to this being simply to make LGBTQ people visible. Visibility on the streets, and in public spaces, is also important to enable LGBTQ people to exercise their rights.
Stockholm Pride Solidarity fund raises money to financially aid other Pride festivals, as a means to help raising visibility for LGBTQ people in other countries, where LGBTQ rights are under attack.
You can help other Pride festivals through donations to the Solidarity Fund. If you have the Swish pay service, you can use the QR codes. Otherwise, please contact us at [email protected].
