Zagreb Pride is a queer-feminist and anti-fascist organization which is committed to the achievement of an active society of solidarity and equality free from gender sexual norms and categories, and any other kind of oppression.
Zagreb Pride strives towards an active society of solidarity, equality, equity and social justice, which is achieved through the deconstruction of the patriarchy in all its forms, whilst acknowledging every person’s right to self-determination, self-identification and self-definition. Through education, research, advocacy, empowerment and direct action, Zagreb Pride struggles for rights of LGBTIQ individuals and community, non-normative families, and society as a whole, and works on the elimination of all forms of discrimination based on the full promotion, respect and protection of human rights.
Zagreb Pride exists for the achievement of social justice and systematic improvement of LGBTIQ rights through advocacy for public good. We consistently, publicly, vocally and directly fight against homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, sexism, chauvinism, misogyny, racism and all forms of exclusiveness. Zagreb Pride is a progressive force which continually puts in focus societal problems and encourages all forms of public- society, stakeholders and LGBTIQ community- to transform the society and make it more equal and equitable for everyone.
As an informal group under various LGBT and related organizations Zagreb Pride has been active since 2002., and since 10.09.2008. it is registered as a non-government organization.
