Vienna Pride against hate
From June 1 to 12, 2022, Vienna's LGBTs express their solidarity with the LGBT community in Ukraine. At the Rainbow Parade on June 11, "We're taking to the streets not only for our own interests," says the organizer Katharina Kacerovsky-Strobl. The motto was selected accordingly: "Pride against hate – make love, not war!" The impressive, colorful and cheerful parade, in which over 250,000 people regularly take part, will make its way around the Ringstrasse boulevard again this year against the direction of the traffic. Naturally, in compliance with all applicable coronavirus measures.
On the subject of coronavirus: Due to the current situation and the associated organizational difficulties, the Pride Village at City Hall Square is unfortunately having to take a break and will only be held again in 2023.
However, many other events will take place. Like, for example, the Pride Run on the Prater Hauptallee on June 10, lots of cultural events, the Pride Beach Day at the Vienna City Beach Club, and the traditional street party "nothing wrong in being the other way round", which will be held on June 4. Discussions, presentations, workshops, and performances by artists will be held virtually. Trams bedecked with rainbow flags will also ply throughout the city for the whole of June to send out a strong signal for equality and tolerance.
