Sofia Pride 2014 on 21 June
17 May 2014

The organizing committee of Sofia Pride 2014 announced today that the seventh annual march in support og equality of lesbian, gay men, bisexual, transgender and intersexual people will be held on 21 June at 5pm. The organizers have already requested from the Sofia Municipality the start point to be the area by the Soviet Army monument and Prince's Garden in Sofia.

Sofia Pride is the biggest annual event in Bulgaria dedicated to human rights and equality of people and it is the biggest event advocating for LGBT people in Bulgaria.

This year the focus of the pride is on the lack any responsible policies by the parties and the institutions in Bulgaria related to non-heterosexual, transgender and intersexual people.

This issue is even more visible in the context of the campaigns for the European Parliament elections 2014.

„In fact, we the people of the LGBTI societies do not feel in any way addressed ore represented despite being citizens and tax payers in Bulgaria and the European Union" Monika Pisankaneva from Bilitis Resource Center Foundation said. "The paradox is the ones who talk on our behalf and about our problems are foreign European MPs and not the ones which we are supposed to vote for. This needs to be changed".

According to Marko Markov of the Youth LGBT organization Action, events like the pride are being avoided by the politicians even as a subject to discussions, while it must be in their area of interest to be involved in this and other human rights events.

The organizers remind that traditionally the march will be preceded by cultural programme of Sofia Pride Film Fest and Sofia Pride Art Week which this year will be realized by the organizations Actions and GLAS.
