West Pride 2022

Each year the West Pride festival is held in Gothenburg. An art and culture festival that creates safe spaces for LGBTQI people and emphasizes norm-criticism and LGBTQI person’s lives.

The festival includes Pride Park, Pride House and Pride Parade. The festival is free for visitors and is primarily aimed at LGBTQI people in Gothenburg and the Västra Götaland region, but also at a wider public nationally and internationally.

Purpose

The aim is to make a diversity of expressions visible by coordinating and arranging art and culture. West Pride creates meeting places and arenas through conversation, reflection and education to achieve in-depth knowledge, attitude change and societal impact. They want to encourage an open societal climate and counteract prejudice and discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression. Through their events and partners, they are a catalyst for positive change locally and globally.

Vision

The vision is an equal world free from prejudice and discrimination.
