A float dedicated to international Prides.
The city of Montpellier has a long tradition of tolerance, hospitality and openness to others. The Montpellier 2023 Pride March is as committed, militant and festive as ever. This year, along with representatives of invited foreign Prides, Montpellier will be marching for those who cannot. For there are still too many countries where people do not live freely and safely because of their gender identity or sexual orientation.
The City of Montpellier and Fierté Montpellier Pride have invited Pride representatives from Montpellier’s sister cities – Sherbrooke, Heidelberg, Manchester – from Paris, and from threatened Pride cities – Kiev, Budapest and Istanbul – as well as a representative of the Rainbow Cities Network, to join the Marche des Fiertés Montpellier wishes to reiterate its solidarity with all those leading the fight for the rights of LGBTQIA+ people around the world, and with those forced to live concealing their love or sexuality. This international float will be displaying its pride on June 17 alongside local floats.
