Pride week in Geneva, important for many reasons –
not only a big parade for visibility – celebrating increasing recognition and rights for minority and marginalised groups – but also for spreading the reality that there exists much more work to be done; even in Switzerland.
In addition to the extensive party atmosphere, a very clear manifesto has been created which can be downloaded here as a PDF document – both English and French.
Much more information on the official Pride website.
Our church was represented in the Saturday parade – alongside “ilga” (international lesbian/gay association) – big thanks to all those who took turns in the heat of the day to carry our banner! Hear André’s message from Sunday – audio bar at bottom of this page:
