The 8th edition of the Prague Pride festival will take place from Monday 6 until Sunday 12 August 2018.
Prague Pride is the largest pride in the Middle and Eastern Europe. The programme comprises of approx. 100 social, sport, cultural and other events and its peak is the Prague Pride Parade, also called as “rainbow parade“ with allegorical vehicles, extravagant costumes and other fancy dressed people.
On Friday before noon, you can take part in the Prague LGBT tour. In the afternoon you can visit the international Vogue dance competition Pride Ball Apocalypse, and in the evening the big music show Dance Divas with Heather Small from M People, this year’s Czech representative at Eurovision Mikolas Josef, and 30 more artists.
Saturday is a big day because of the Pride Parade and the 3-stage music afternoon at the Pride Park. Because of construction work in Prague’s main square the route of the parade is different this year. But it stills goes to the park at Letna, where we will have three music DJ and live stages, refreshments and a Queer Market.
On Sunday you can chill out in the Pride Village at the leisurely Pride Picnic with music, drinks, and snacks.
This year’s Prague Pride main host is the Dutch transgender model Loiza Lamers. She is the winner of the popular contest Holland’s Next Top Model and she shot a photo campaign with the trans model Benjamin Melzer for Diesel and for the animal rights organization PETA. Other speakers will be the organizer of the famous Vienna Life Ball Gery Keszler, the religious HIV activist from Britain Philip Baldwin, the Swiss historian studying the lives of lesbian seniors Corinne Rufli and the Slovak dancer Jaro Vinarsky.
