Soweto Pride 2019
SOWETO PRIDE 2019: 15th Year Anniversary
SOWETO Pride is celebrating 15 incredible years. 15 years of resilience, joy, sorrow, ups and downs. 15 years of celebrating community and this year it shall be under the theme of ‘Fly Your Freedom Flag’
The event will be taking place on the 28th of September 2019 at uBuntu Kraal, Orlando, gates will be open from 09:00am.
The need to create this safe and celebratory space, is as important now as it has ever been, even though more people are understanding about sexuality the violence and discrimination continues. Because of this the Forum for the Empowerment of Women “FEW” staff members and Board Members are working tirelessly to ensure that 15th Year Soweto Pride March and Festivities continues and make sure that LGTBI persons have this the freedom to fly their individual and collective flags.
We believe in good times and having fun but note that you cannot bring your own alcohol and NO outside alcohol is allowed. There will be drinks sold at the venue. SAPS is putting stricter measures on city events with alcohol as it creates a lot of security issues.
We appeal to the LGBTI community to act responsibly before, during and after Soweto Pride. FEW has experienced excessive backlash in because of the alleged uncontrollable behaviour. Soweto Pride belongs to all of us, let us all make a meaningful contribution to the sustainability of our Pride.
This is what to expect on the day:
Music and dancing
There will also be a Pride After Party to raise the funds on for the next Soweto Pride.
