Vienna Pride 2021: Stay safe, stay proud!

The Rainbow Parade is the absolute highlight of the annual Vienna Pride event. Normally, dozens of trucks blaring loud music and with a bunch of "passengers" on board roll their way along Vienna's Ringstrasse. Due to the current coronavirus situation, the demonstration for equal rights of LGBTIQ people will take place on June 19, 2021, as a march on foot and on bicycles. This way the Rainbow Parade will be returning to its roots. The closing event will be held on City Hall Square. FFP2 masks and a minimum distance of two meters between people from different households are mandatory.

Two-week program

Vienna Pride gets going under the motto "Stay safe, stay proud!" on June 7, 2021. Many (official) buildings will hoist the rainbow flag to ensure visibility of the LGBTIQ community. Trams bedecked with rainbow flags will also ply throughout the city for the whole of June.

The Pride rooftop cinema and Pride brunches at community venues are the few events that can be held in an analog fashion. Most of the program will be held virtually: digital guided tours of museums like the Albertina, DJ and band livestream evenings from clubs, discussions, workshops and medical online presentations. The legendary Pride Village at City Hall Square is having to take a break this year.

Virtual Pride Run

Even the Pride Run on June 18, 2021, which attracted thousands of runners to the Ringstrasse for EuroPride 2019, is having to take place virtually this year: the packages for all registered entrants will be sent out by post. Each person will then run in the Pride Run shirt in an individual location to ensure visibility.

Queering the Belvedere

The Belvedere offers a special program: In addition to a Queer History Tour with Andreas Brunner from QWIEN - Center for Queer History (12.6.), artist talks and films on the topic of queer archives (17.6.) are on the program. On 24.6. the focus will be on work in queer-feminist collectives. And of course, the Belvedere will also raise the rainbow flag.
