Announcing Gibraltar Pride 2014
Gibraltar Pride 2014 - a series of events taking place under the Equality & Diversity banner, will take place in July 2014. With the full support of the Government of Gibraltar and the Organising Committee will be working with the Ministries of Culture, Tourism, Education and Equality in the planning and execution of the various events that will form part of Gibraltar’s first official Pride event. The vision for Gibraltar Pride is one which includes as many different sectors of the community as possible – and excludes none. It will be a celebration for all, placing Gibraltar on the map yet again, as an example of a community that co-exists with strong ties and solidarity.
“Gibraltar Pride 2014” will celebrate the togetherness we enjoy in Gibraltar along with our diversity and equality. Our vision is to include at various events as many different sectors of the community as possible, in a celebration for all, that places Gibraltar on the map as an example of a community that co-exists with strong ties and solidarity. Our events will be focused on measures which contribute to greater togetherness. We want to make this a celebration of our individualities whilst embracing and sharing pride in our older generations, our physically and mentally challenged citizens, our young, our diverse cultures, our ethnic groups, our LGBT communities, our different faiths, and other sectors who may wish to come forward to celebrate in peace and understanding. With the aim of not only reinforcing cohesion, we move forward with optimism on openly having fun under the slogan ‘We Are One!’ In July there will be a series of events taking place under the “We Are One” banner, which will lead up to a main public event on Saturday 12th July which is the start of Summer Nights.
