On Saturday, June 27th 2015, the streets of Paris will witness the Gay Pride Parade hosted by the Inter-LGBT organization, a manifestation meant to encourage awareness, equality, and respect for all.
Every year, nearly 500,000 people attend in a festive and convivial atmosphere to support and give voice to the LGBT community during the parade in Paris. Uniquely, the parade is simultaneously festive and political under the theme of “Numerous and Indivisible”, marching for a society that is inclusive in its solidarity.
The parade will leave from Place Edmond Rostand at 2PM (Left Bank near the jardin du Luxembourg), and over the course of three hours will reach Place de la République (where the grand podium awaits), crossing the Seine and stopping by Bastille along the way. If you would like to participate or spectate during your visit in Paris, the map shown below will be a rough guide to its placement.
Please note that at 4:30PM, there will be a moment of silence in support of those afflicted by AIDS.
When? Saturday, June 27th, starting at 2PM.
Where? Place Edmond-Rostand, 75006, Paris
Metro: Cluny-La Sorbonne (line 10)
