Ukraine LGBTQ Pride Parade celebrated in Poland

Ukraine’s largest LGBTQ Pride event took place on Saturday – in Poland.

KyivPride was celebrated alongside the Warsaw Equality Parade on the streets of the Polish capital, with 300 participants who traveled from Ukraine to remind the international community of the ongoing Russian invasion of their country.

“Unfortunately, we cannot march in Kyiv,” said Maksym Eristavi, a Ukrainian journalist and KyivPride board member, citing the dangers of Russian bombing. “But it is important for us to march anyway. “It’s still about pride, but pride in being Ukrainian and surviving the genocide.”

KyivPride trucks led the parade as blue and yellow Ukrainian flags mingled with rainbow flags and protesters chanted “Slava Ukraini” – glory to Ukraine.
