Mumbai’s LGBTQIA+ pride parade is back after four-year gap


Mumbai: After a hiatus of four years, the city’s official LGBTQIA+ pride parade is back, this time, the organisers say, it will be bigger than the previous ones. With all permissions in place, the march will commence from August Kranti Maidan in Tardeo at 3pm this Saturday. It will pass through Nana Chowk, Lamington Road, Opera House, Kennedy Bridge and will culminate at the starting point. The last pride march was held in the city in early 2019 in which more than 8,000 persons from across India participated. Difficulty in obtaining police permissions and the pandemic put the march on pause in the following years. But this time, the community was determined to not let anything stop them. For starters, the previous umbrella of Queer Azaadi Mumbai (QAM) under which the march was organised was disbanded. In its place, the collective Mumbai Queer Pride was born.
