What is Milano Pride

in short

Milano Pride is first and foremost a manifestation of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transexual, asexual, intersexual, and queer pride: an extraordinary celebration of freedom that is made possible by the combined work of pubblic offices, associations, and businesses as well as the participation of thousands of people.

It is organised by the Coordinamento Arcobaleno on the basis of a project made by C.I.G. Arcigay Milano. Milano Pride is part of Onda Pride, which unites all the Italian Prides.

inclusive and participative

Milano Pride takes into account a variety of associations and institutional bodies, not just those tied to the LGBT* community, so as to create a synergistic partnership.

supportive

Milano Pride is attentive to and supportive of the rights of other minorities, mindful of how resources are used, and respectful of the city.

economically virtuous

Milano Pride is careful in its use of resources and can support itself thanks to the involvement of local businesses who wish to contribute to and invest in this event.
