(Blogmensgo, 7 November 2012) EuroPride Marseille Mediterranean 2013 is now assigned three major priorities: culture, LesboPride and openness towards the Maghreb. Multiple events will be available from July 10 to 20, 2013, between the opening and closing.
The association LGP Marseille, commissioned by the European Pride Organisers Association, wants to make the 20th edition of the EuroPride the most memorable of all. Two circumstances are favorable in support from the mayor of Marseille and the PACA region (Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur) and also, the stamp of “European Capital of Culture” which has been awarded to Marseille for the year 2013. Side potential obstacles, it is hoped that the cacophony and the parochial Pride 2012 will not happen again.
They have set up headquarters at EuroPride Park in the Friche Belle-de-Mai. It will also be a pleasure to go to the beach, as Beaches Gaston Deferre will indeed be requisitioned for Gay Pride on July 20 and the closing ceremony, while the “beach EuroPride” will be installed on Prado beach, where events will be organized. As for the opening ceremony, it will rub shoulders with a monument of cultural life Marseille: the museum of Mucem.
Marseille wants to be a cosmopolitan city and full for EuroPride 2013 and look intently across the Mediterranean towards LGBTQI people of the Maghreb (Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia) to “support and give them visibility.” Several conferences and workshops will be also devoted to LGBTQI in the Maghreb.
And since there is no music without decibels at Pride, it’s all going on at tonitruer Dock des Suds which will hold the “Club EuroPride.”
MensGo is also putting some partnerships into the event, so look out for us there.
