Yesterday the carnival of LGBT pride known as the Prague Pride Parade marched through the streets of the Czech capital, the ninth time the “rainbow march” has been held here. Starting at noon, the march began on Wenceslas Square and continued across the river to the Letná plain. Organizers had announced to City Hall that 30 000 participants were anticipated. Ahead of the parade’s start, leading figures were given awards for advancing and supporting equal rights for the LGBT community. One awardee this year was David Tišer, who is a member of both the LGBT and Romani communities. ROMEA TV broadcast the beginning of the Prague Pride march live online. Featuring 20 floats, the parade began assembling on the upper part of Wenceslas Square at 11:30. One hour later, it set off down Na Příkopě Street toward Republic Square (náměstí Republiky).
