Lucknow had its first ever Pride Parade. It’s so beautiful that we’re crying!

Lucknow holds its first Queer Pride Parade: They marched 1.5 km with their message reaching millions of hearts!

While Colourful clothes and rainbow flags marked the occasion, it was eighteen years after India held its first Queer Pride Parade, the event finally came to Lucknow.

“This was a full-fledged Queer Pride Parade,” said Darvesh Singh Yadvendra, the organiser of the event. “The first one was held in Kolkata in 1999 but in that, very few people turned out. Here, for the first time it was held and not only LGBIT but their family members turned out in support. It shows that they are also getting acceptability.”

Check out the pictures if you missed being at the event!
