Pride provides a platform for every part of Cape Town’s LGBT+ community (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, questioning, intersex, non-binary, asexual, polysexual, genderqueer and gender variant people) to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow them to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing. Our annual Parade through the heart of the CBD gives us a chance to be visible and speak loudly to the rest of the city about what we have achieved, how far we have come and what is still needed.
Pride includes people of every race and faith, whether disabled or able-bodied and all sexualities and genders including lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, queer, questioning, intersex, trans*, genderqueer, gender variant or non-binary as well as straight and cis allies. Cape Town Pride is run entirely by volunteers. We came together as Cape Town Pride LGBT+ Community Pride in 2014 to find a way to deliver a Pride that Cape Town deserves.
OUTReach Africa hosts Cape Town Pride and multiple LGBTI+ events and publications in Cape Town and surrounds.
