The recent week-long Namibia Pride was the country’s biggest ever Pride celebration, featuring a colourful and defiant Pride Parade through the capital Windhoek. Organised by the Namibia Equal Rights Movement, the commemorations included events such as a feminist festival, sunset yoga in the park, a quiz night, a film screening, an exhibition and a drag night.
