The Cape Town Pride Parade will take place on the streets of Green Point on Saturday. It is a celebration of the LGBT+ community and also to highlight the struggles and challenges they continue to face in South African communities.

The event is the culmination of a week-long programme.

A moment of silence will be observed to honour fallen members of the LGBT+ community.

The City’s JP Smith says Saturday’s parade will start at midday in Chiappinni Street in De Waterkant and move towards Reddam Field at the Green Point Urban Park.

โ€œWe are grateful to events such as Cape Town Pride for providing a space for individuals to express themselves, raise awareness and celebrate who they are. As an inclusive City, we want to reaffirm our support for the LGBT+ community through partnering with organisations such as Cape Town Pride who have committed themselves to doing good in our society and continuing the fight for equality,โ€ says Smith.
