Dear friends of the Sofia Pride,
Tomorrow the Bulgarian gay, lesbian, bi and transgender community and all their supporters will march the streets of Sofia for the 5th time to call for respect and celebrate diversity. Much have been achieved in the last five years. The pride is the moment also to remind us that much still needs to be done to access full equal rights and overcome homophobia and violence. But most of all it is the day to celebrate the successes that have been achieved and to be proud of the visibility of the GLTB community in Bulgaria.
I wish you a safe and joyful pride!
