This year Way Out West and West Pride starts to collaborate. Now more than ever we need to be united and make a clear stand for human rights. The start of the collaboration is a LGBTQ diplomacy of Way Out West led by West Pride. We will then be present at each other’s festivals.
The cooperation and diplomacy is about gaining knowledge of people’s different living conditions. In addition to giving basic knowledge in legal rights in Sweden and the rest of the world, the diplomacy shows how businesses can work with this subject in a way to get better and more progressive.
West Pride is a free art and culture festival that creates safe meeting places for LGBTQ people and allies. We promote norm criticism and raise awareness about LGBTQ people’s life situation.
Our aim is to visualize a variety of expressions by coordinating and arranging art and culture events. We create meeting places and venues for knowledge, conversation, reflection, attitudinal change and social impact. We want to encourage an open social climate that combats prejudices and discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and/or expression.
Welcome All LGBTQ people and allies to West Pride 7-11 June 2017!
