We are the European Pride Organisers Association
LGBTI+ Pride events change lives. They empower people, showing that they are loved, valued, respected and part of a community. And that is why we exist – because LGBTI+ people everywhere need to know that we all stand for them, without exception.
For almost thirty years, the European Pride Organisers Association has supported and advocated for the LGBTI+ Pride movement in Europe. Our members are the Pride organisations that organise events throughout the year, and we have 100 member organisations in more than 40 countries. We are working to support Pride organisers in hostile environments, and we licence EuroPride to a different member each year.
EuroPride 2023 takes place in Valletta, Malta, from 7-17 September 2023. Visit europride2023.mt to find out more and to plan your visit!
Currently a great deal of our efforts are focused on supporting our colleagues in Ukraine. Read more here about what we are doing.
