Parade, pride and party came together after 2 years of the pandemic in Mumbai’s iconic march celebrating solidarity in gender and sexuality diversity. Mumbai’s queer community organised a Mumbai Pride March last weekend in Carter Road, Bandra. Around 2,000 colourfully dressed people took to the streets for the Pride Parade, after 2 whole years of the Pandemic. The Mumbai Pride Parade was organised by the Color Positive Foundation which saw around 2000+ people from the LGBTQ+ community. EORTV, country’s biggest OTT platform showcasing LGBTQ content and stories, was on board as the official streaming partner. The day was a celebration of solidarity and pride and saw people come together and make their voices heard and celebrate their identities.
The entire parade started from a point near Taj Villa and ended at the Carter Road Amphitheatre. The Pride march was an occasion to celebrate the freedom to be who you are and feel proud of the sexual orientation you are born with. The crowd was greeted at the end of the march with free entertainment, and festivities, including live performances of the community dancing and rejoicing together. The march was fierce, fabulous, loved, diverse and full of enthusiasm
