The 2019 Durban Pride will celebrate legal equality for the South African Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer + (LGBTQ+) communities while remembering the lives lost to hate crimes, discrimination and stigma; and expressing resistance to and outrage over violence against the LGBTQ+ community on Saturday June 29.
This year also marks 25 years since South Africa’s first democratic elections and the journey to a progressive constitution that includes the Bill of Rights and the Equality Clause which guarantees protection against unfair discrimination based on race, gender, disability, religion and importantly for the LGBTQ+ community, sexual orientation.
The event will be held at Gugu Dlamini Park in the Durban CBD from 10am. The march is at 1pm.
