7 days, 90 events ja 100 000 people in summertime Helsinki!
Helsinki Pride is Finland’s largest and most influential cultural and human rights event and one of the biggest public events of the year.
The Pride Week is celebrated between June 24th and June 30th 2019!
What’s up this year? Both familiar and brand new events!
In the spring, Helsinki Pride and organizer HeSeta will have a new visual look and website when the association’s name changes to Helsinki Pride Community. Keep an eye on our channels!
Like last year, the Pride Parade starts at the Senate Square and ends in the Park Festival in Kaivopuisto on Saturday 29th June.
We will also have the Pride House, which brings together a program full of discussion panels, workshops, shows and exhibitions, and serves a rainbowy meeting place in the very center of Helsinki.
As a new concept, we will introduce the Pride Spaces. Pride Spaces are free of charge and versatile facilities offered by our partners to the program organizers in need of a venue.
Naturally we will also have the Youth Pride for 13-29-year-olds that will take over the Youth Pride House in Sörnäinen for the whole week.
Helsinki Pride’s theme for the 50th anniversary of Stonewall’s events is Movement. With the theme, we want to honor our roots and increase knowledge about the shared history of minority groups.
We also want to raise discussion about the current state and future of the human rights movement: how should we grow and develop to meet the challenges of today and to support our community in the best possible way?
We look forward to contributions from persons, groups, or organizations who have experienced being left out of the movement or felt invisible, or who feel that the time to join is right now.
We are growing and moving forward. We know where we were, where we are and where we are going – we are unstoppable!
Join the Movement! See you on June 24 – 30th!
