Roma Pride celebrates 25 years

Rome marks 25th edition of Roma Pride on 8 June.

This year's Roma Pride, the capital’s annual celebration of the LGBTQ community, will see a colourful parade make its way through the city centre on 8 June.

The parade leaves Piazza della Repubblica at around 15.00, in the direction of the Colosseum, concluding in Piazza della Madonna di Loreto.

For the second consecutive year the British embassy to Italy will have a float in the parade, under the theme #LoveisGREAT, with music by Amy Whinehouse, Elton John, David Bowie and Freddie Mercury, provided by DJLaù.

The first Roma Pride took place in 1994 and was attended by former mayor Francesco Rutelli. In 2014 Ignazio Marino became the first mayor since Rutelli to attend the annual event.

Since coming to office in 2016, Rome's current mayor Virginia Raggi has not attended any of the Roma Pride events but has sent representatives instead. This year too she will be unable to attend Roma Pride due to "institutional commitments" out of town.

The parade will result in traffic detours and the closure of several streets. For full details of the parade and parallel events see Roma Pride website.
