Last weekend, the 30th annual Johannesburg Pride Parade and Festival took place, and we were l i v i n g. YouTuber Shane Kayser was on the scene as she chatted to parade attendees about their lewks and faves.
This year, Johannesburg Pride created Pride of Africa as a unified platform and voice for a diverse community.
With regards to the purpose of the campaign, Johannesburg Pride said, ‘While South Africa champions equality laws and the rights of sexual and gender minorities, the unfortunate reality is that LGBTQ+ME communities across the continent still face significant legal, social and cultural barriers.
‘The right of all South Africans to exercise their constitutional freedom of association and demonstration is vividly juxtaposed to the gay murders, corrective rapes, workplace discrimination, and transphobia that has occurred across the continent.’
Performers at the event included RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Brooke Lynn Hytes, Olwee, Deejay Puggy, DJ Skye, Mrizzie, Deeper Ntlokwana and Locnville.
