Johannesburg Pride is pleased to announce the launch of its partnership with Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival Southern Africa Foundation (NPO) and Mr Gay World™. The intention for this partnership is to formulate a cohesive working relationship to better serve the LGBT+ME community.

Their new relationship ensures the LGBT voice of South Africa is louder, stronger and more visible. The long term intention is to improve the reach of our community and facilitate better social integration.

The first leg of the partnership with both teams assisting at the Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival 2018 and Mr Gay World™ 2018 Knysna South Africa event to be held at the end of May in Knysna. The next step would be a collaboration at the 29th Annual Johannesburg Pride and associated events. Johannesburg Pride will be a four day event this year. All the details will be launched at the Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival 2018 Knysna.

Their joint message to the LGBT+ME community is firm; “we heard you”. They are fostering closer working relationships with the aim of enhancing the development of the national wide LGBT+ME community.
