After the legalization of same-sex marriage, Vienna is going to hold the ‘EuroPride’ event in 2019. It will last for two to four weeks, starting from the last week of May and stretching into the middle of June. The last time Austria hosted this event was in 2001 when it was dedicated to LGBT. This year, the ‘EuroPride’ event was held in Amsterdam. Even the Austrian diva Conchita Wurst made an appearance as one of the event’s stars acts.
The event will be organized by the country’s largest lesbian, gay and bisexual association, HOSI Wien. The organization takes great pride in receiving the opportunity to host this event. President Lui Fidelsberger said that “It’s a great vote of confidence from our European friends”. HOSI is already thinking about the event and planning it so that everything is in the right place. It will involve a lot of work since the event will be extensive and is going to last for numerous weeks.
Even though Vienna has already earned the title Sex Capital of Europe, it aspired to something greater. The city has put a lot of work into becoming the rainbow capital of Europe as well. It is open to all colors and has become a city where colorfulness is fully accepted.
Though there are many plans to what the EuroPride event will hold for its visitors it has received a lot of support. The entire city is visibly supporting the event since all the trams run with rainbow flags on their rooftops. Even the prominent public buildings will be decorated with rainbow flags a few weaknesses of the parade.
Vienna is a place that is open for people with all kinds of sexual preferences. Nobody can stop it from developing into one of the most tolerant places in the world and the EuroPride event will provide proof to that. What do you think?
