Global Call to Action

CALL TO ACTION

In the years before Stonewall, there was no Pride movement, only legalized oppression and despair within our marginalized LGBTQ+ community.

At great personal risk of arrest, careers and reputations, we took to the streets. 

 

We marched. We sang.  We prayed. And MUCH MORE.

55+ years later, we are witnessing a tsunami of homophobia and laws criminalizing the lives of our LGBTQ+ brothers and sisters around the world, with growing intensity in Africa.

 

This is my 2024 CALL TO ACTION:  March, Sing, Pray and join together in solidarity as we seek to uplift, protect and build resilience no matter where you are in the world.

Solidarity Marches

With Pride parades and marches are not being held across the African continent, AFRICA PRIDE is an international march by individuals in solidarity with those unable to march and celebrate in public.

AFRICA PRIDE Solidarity Marches will be experienced virtually across Africa and in partnership with individuals participating in Pride events in North America, UK, Ireland, Norway, Greece, Mexico, and Colombia.

Friends and family joining together in small gatherings throughout Africa may create their own version of a march and share with others online around the world.
