West Pride is a unique cultural festival highlighting the standard criticism and LGBT persons’ lives in an artistic and cultural context. Our intention is to visibility a diversity of expression by coordinating and organizing art and culture of the highest quality. But also to create meeting places and arenas for knowledge recess, conversation and reflection. Through art and culture, we encourage an open and tolerant social climate in Gothenburg and western Sweden. A climate that counteracts prejudice and discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
