Demonstration versus equality, the Pride in Western Europe and the Balkans

 Last Thursday we participated in the Conference “Demonstration versus equality, the Pride in Western Europe and the Balkans” organized by Socialists and Democrats Group in the European Parliament and MEP Daniele Viotti ( European Parliament Intergroup on LGBTI Rights co-President).

We joined many activists from different European countries panel: PINK Embassy (Albania), Kyiv Pride (Ukraine), Queer Mary Association (Poland), LGL (Lithuania), ERA (Balkans) and our Rumanian member from the Democratic Left Foundation, Iulian Stoian.

On Saturday we joined our comrades from the Partito Democratico and the Giovani Democratici at the Pride march. Our flags from S&D were everywhere and Daniele Viotti leaded the walk with regional and local politicians.

It has been very interesting to reinforce our dialogue with Eastern and Central Europe activists and with the Italians who celebrated their new Civil Union Law. We will happy to continue our collaboration to bring better protection and equality in all of these European countries.
