Gay Pride Becomes Part of Normality in Prague
(Blogmensgo, gay blog of August 16, 2016) The sixth edition of Prague Pride was not just a parade: During the week of August 8 to 14, there were a total 130 events themed “Love for everyone.” This universal right obviously includes child adoption for gay and lesbian couples.
Besides many cultural events like exhibits, movies and podium discussions, there were lots of parties of course.
Last year, about 2000 to 3000 foreign tourists participated in Prague Pride, mainly from neighboring countries like Slovakia and Poland that hardly have any Gay Pride celebrations. That is why some big tourism companies like Airbnb, Ibis and Hilton were among the sponsors.
One of the invited guests bears a famous name: Omar Sharif Jr., grandson of the great actor Omar Sharif who died in 2015. Omar Jr. (32) is an actor and model, and has been persona non grata in his home country Egypt since his coming out in March 2012.
