Celebrating EuroPride in Vienna

A EuroPride conference this year will take place from 12 to 14 June in Vienna. FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty will deliver the conference keynote speech on where we are, how we got there and where we need to go.

Stonewall Vienna and the Vienna Anti-Discrimination Agency for Same Sex and Transgender Lifestyles (WASt) are organising this conference. FRA will also take part in panel debates on themes like business and human rights, intersex rights and using research for advocacy and activism.

On 13 June, in the Pride Village, the Director will also participate in a public event on ‘How the International Community Works Together Towards LGBTIQ Equality’, organised by Diplomats for Equality. The Diplomats for Equality is a grouping of over 35 countries, Embassies and international organisations, based in Vienna.

FRA will also join the Pride Run on 14 June and be part of two floats at the Pride Parade on 15 June. During the Parade, the Director will join EU Commissioner Vera Jourova, EU Ambassadors and EU representatives.
