HeSeta invites you to celebrate Helsinki Pride, Finland’s largest culture and human rights event during 26.6. – 2.7.2017!

Helsinki Pride is a celebration of gender and sexual minorities organised by HeSeta. Our goal is to raise awareness, and improve visibility and the rights of sexual and gender minorities in Finland. Helsinki Pride highlights and rejoices everyone’s right to openly be as they are. Pride brings forwards the notion that our society is not ready until equality and equity includes all.

Pride week is a full of rainbow colored program; there are lectures on current topics, discussions, sunny picnics, workshops, art and culture and of course several awesome parties which continues until the late morning. There are events for all ages. Targeting participants of 13-25 years, the Youth Pride (Nuorten Pride) forms its own entity of Helsinki Pride.

The theme of Helsinki Pride 2017 is freedom and responsibility, stemming from the 100 years of Finnish independence. We want to bring human rights, equality and equity back to the discussion from the point of view of the society, community and individuals. Freedom and responsibility as a theme is also an acknowledgment to the 100 year old Finland.

We welcome you to enjoy the versatile program, cheerful atmosphere and summery Helsinki!
