Vienna Pride & Rainbow Parade

This year's Vienna Pride runs from 11 to 15 June, 2014, under the motto "Proud by Choice". This "Pride Village" will be constructed on City Hall Square this time around: a tent city in the middle of town, offering a mix of culture, show, food and information. Many of the city's gay and lesbian restaurants will provide food and drink. From 11.00 am to 10.00 pm, visitors in the raised sand beach can relax on loungers, enjoy a drink, learn about the Viennese community and dance to party music.

The highlight of Vienna Pride is the Rainbow Parade on Saturday, 14 June, 2014. On trailers, motorbikes, in carriages or on foot: gays, lesbians, drag queens, leather boys, transgenders and many more celebrate themselves in the Rainbow Parade and send out a signal against discrimination. Vienna's Ringstrasse will therefore be closed to traffic. The Rainbow Parade will make its way around the entire ring road this year against the flow of traffic, starting at 2.00 pm (start and end: City Hall Square). More than 100,000 visitors are expected.

Those who want to continue partying afterward will also be superbly looked after: Numerous parties at different locations will turn night into day from Saturday to Sunday.

The traditional Rainbow tours  on the history of homosexuality will be held again at the University of Vienna on Friday, 13 June. The tour will be held in German at 4.00 pm and in English at 6.00 pm.
