Dear friends,

Happy Pride Month to all the people around the world! Over 50 years ago, the Pride movement took off and has spread all around the world; together we stand up and march for equality, for inclusion and acceptance. As Rosa Lëtzebuerg and organizers of the Luxembourg Pride, we want to also remind ourselves of our responsibility to the LGBTIQ+ community to stand up for every single individual and bring people together. We want the Luxembourg Pride to be a platform for the whole community and support others in their struggles and fights.
That is why we want to invite you all to join us for the Luxembourg Pride Week from the 1st till the 10th of July, to participate actively in our socio-cultural events, share and listen to each other's stories.

The Luxembourg Pride Week is part of the official Program of Esch2022 - European Capital of Culture - and so we are excited to share with you our diverse and rich program with a bit of everything for everyone!


You will find our complet program and much more in this year's Pride Guide!
Best wishes and Happy Pride Week,
the board of Rosa Lëtzebuerg

Finally a street fest like in the old days! But not quite: This year the street festival will take place on two days and there will even be two stages on Saturday!

On the Village Stage and the Main Stage you can experience a lot of queer artists until late in the evening. Starting with our drag queens and the oldest travesty group of Luxembourg to other exceptional talents like LLEO and Wilhelmine to the local headliners CHAiLD and Edsun! The crowning glory is of course the 80s icon Boy George and Culture Club.

EQUALITY MARCH
But before queer art is celebrated on the two stages, let's get serious first. Since a Pride always has a political character, we want to express the demands of the LGBTIQ+ community to politics for full equality with the Equality March. Attention: for registered floats and groups, the times communicated during the registration are valid!

Be there and show your support for solidarity and acceptance! Be colorful, be loud, be creative! Bring a sign with a message or wave a flag! Assembly point is at 12.30 at the Parking Aloyse Meyer, the march starts at 13.00. Everybody is welcome!
