PRAGUE PRIDE 2021
2.–8. srpna 2021
Prague Pride festival has been a popular annual August fixture since 2011. This festival provided the impetus for the Prague Pride Association’s founding by Czech LGBT activists and long-term Prague resident expats. Prague Pride is one of the largest cultural events in the Czech Republic.
The week-long festival showcases over a hundred cultural and social, public forums and debates, sports events, and spiritual meetings. The festival attracts numerous international guests to Prague such as Omar Sharif Jr - LGBT activist, Conchita Wurst - singer, Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir - former Icelandic prime minister, Ellie Lust - chairwoman of the Dutch police organization "Pink in Blue", and Italian Vladimir Luxuria - the first transgender person elected to a European parliament.
Prague Pride’s traditional showcase event is Saturday's city parade, which has tens of thousands of joyful festival goers. In 2020, it was necessary to instead have a Rainbow Cruise to comply with preventive anti-epidemic measures. The festival is held under the auspices of Prague’s mayors. Since 2015, Mayor Adriana Krnáčová has led the procession, and in 2019 Mayor Zdeněk Hřib raised the official rainbow flag at the town hall for the first time.
In 2020 over 120 events took place during festival week. A team of dedicated enthusiasts - often volunteers - devote their time throughout the year to making festival week a big success. And during the festival, hundreds of volunteers also help out. Tom Bílý has been leading the festival team since 2020.
