Rainbow Prague Pride Parade: With lots of floats and diplomatic support

What is this year’s Prague Pride Parade going to look like? 21 floats and 3 honorary cars for Prague Pride Marshal will be part of the march, as well as diplomats from 11 countries.

In the head of the parade, there will be three rainbow-decorated Mini Cooper cars carrying Karla Šlechtová, Jiří Hromada and David Tišer. These are the personalities who we decided to honor with the title of Prague Pride Marshal. They will be given their diplomas and sashes before we start marching.

The line of floats will be opened by the indispensable Prague Pride car. The charming and energetic Kara Van Park will be on board, amazing drag queen from UK. With her singing she will brighten up the parade. And also the Pride Park because she is one of the star guest who will shine on the main stage.

For the youngest participants, children train will be ready behind the Prague pride car, in front of the hotel Evropa. We must emphasize that getting in and out of the train is allowed only if the train is not moving. Any other behavior is dangerous and forbidden.

The wedding carriage of Jsme fér will be easy to find. Whole bunch of “wedding guests” in white T-shirts standing nearby, welcoming everyone who supports the fight equal marriage in Czechia.

Behind Jsme fér there will be the float of the queer film festival Mezipatra, followed by Amnesty International. Next in the line are floats of the Czech Pirate Party and the gypsy ARA car.

In order to make the parade accessible for all generations, we include two minibuses from the organization Život 90. They offer elderly people free ride through the whole parade. You will find the buses where Wencelsas Square meets the streets Ve Smečkách and Opletalova. See the Facebook event Pride Parade s Životem 90 for more information.

Positions behind the senior cars will be occupied by IBM, ADP and eBay. Float number fourteen belongs to Sidney Pride and will be followed by the companies SAP, Microsoft and Hunter. The next positions are reserved for Ben & Jerrys’s tiny car and the floats of Google and Accenture.

Among the last cars is the float of the hotel Mama Shelter. The car will carry seven unique carnival figures. If you want to feed your Intagram, you know where to head. The array of floats will be closed by Kiwi.com and Amazon.

We acknowledge that there are people who prefer quiet places and we think of them too. If you are not keen on loud music, you can help us with the giant rainbow flag. It is 50 meters long, easily providing enough distance from the musical production. Does this sound good to you? Meet the flag  near the Wenceslas Statue in upper part of the square.

We have also hung many rainbow flags on the Čechův bridnge, over which the parade will march, and the Legií bridge, which leads to the Pride Village. The flags became a target of hateful aggression and many of them are no more on their poles. We have informed the Police. We are sad that the decorations, which has cost us a lot of work and money, stayed on only for few day.

International support

Among the people joining the parade, there will be eleven of sixteen diplomats who issued a joint declaration supporting Prague pride and queer people. “We, Heads of Diplomatic Missions in Prague, support the human rights of all, including LGBTI persons. Diplomats from eleven countries will proudly join the Pride Parade in Prague on August 10, 2019 behind a #DiplomatsforEquality banner. “
