VISIONS OF PRIDE
Stonewall GmbH is the non-for- profit company that organises the Vienna LGBTIQ Regenbogenparade and EuroPride 2019 as well as festivals and a number of other events throughout the year. Stonewall exists primarily to develop the community pride events for the benefit of Vienna’s LGBTIQ communities, the enjoyment of a wider audience and as a global beacon of diversity, acceptance and LGBTIQ rights. We aim to raise the visibility of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer communities. We do this through:
- Providing the opportunity for LGBTIQ individuals and groups to use the Stonewall community pride events as a statement of pride and to promote a broader message of diversity and acceptance;
- Anchoring the Parade in a broader program of cultural and social activities for the enjoyment of local audiences and to attract visitors to Vienna;
- Providing resources and opportunities to our community for creative and political expression;
- Embracing individuals and groups from the broader community who share our vision;
- Constantly improving creativity and production values on our events, including bringing the world’s best artists, thinkers and entertainers to Vienna. The purpose and action which we have developed for the Stonewall community pride events is our key festivals and Regenbogenparade held in Vienna each year. We inspire the world to love each other by celebrating the power and beauty of diversity.
