Are you ready for Pink Parade 2023? Coming in strong with the message, “Brisez les normes. Pas nos vies.” (Break the norms. Not our lives.)
It’s obvious this year, most certainly due to what has been seen throughout the global media networks, that the LGBTQIA+ community is reflective and concerned while taking a stand in how those of us are currently being treated around the world due to inequality and violence.
Although in the Côte d’Azur, forms of violence are fortunately sporadic, it is important we stand together in solidarity with those not so lucky while continuing to push for equality.
This year, the Pink Parade (Pride) takes place on Sunday, July 9th.
The parade will start at 4 pm in Place Charles de Gaulle (Libération district), and follow a route through the streets of Nice. The march will then continue on a small section of the Promenade des Anglais, leading to a festive evening that will be held at the Théâtre de Verdure.
Since the city of Nice is considered central to everything pertaining to the gay community, this tends to be where everyone in the region gathers as one for Pride, and here, instead of watching the parade from the sidelines, one can instead walk in the parade which is typically a fun and most memorable experience.
