Lahti Pride 2023 has safety in focus
The eighth yearly Lahti Pride event takes place from May 22nd to 28th. The patron of the event is the president and CEO of LAB University of Applied Sciences, Turo Kilpeläinen.
This year the theme of the festival week is “a safer future”. We want to shine a light on the struggles that LGBTQIA+ minorities still face today and build bridges. The state of the world as well as the political climate are reflected in the lives of ordinary people, and our aim is to offer safer and inclusive experiences to LGBTQIA+ individuals as well as to allies, supporters and everyone taking an interest.
The event is organised solely by volunteers. Local companies and organisations are also involved, and collaboration with them is an extremely important part of a successful Pride event. You can support Lahti Pride by helping the organiser, Lahden Seta ry. at https://www.lahdenseta.fi.
