O Povorci / About Pride March


[hrvatski] For English scroll down

Povorka ponosa Zagreb Pridea je najvažniji godišnji prosvjed, demonstracija i javni politički skup lezbijka, gejeva, biseksualnih, transrodnih, transpolnih, interspolnih i queer osoba.

Povorka ponosa Zagreb Pridea sebe smatra sljednicom međunarodnog Pride pokreta, nastalog na Stonvolškoj pobuni i “Gay Liberation Frontu”.

Prva zagrebačka Povorka ponosa organizirana je 29. lipnja 2002. godine na poticaj lezbijske aktivističke zajednice zbog traumatičnog iskustva nekoliko žena iz Hrvatske nakon pokušaja obilježavanja Dana ponosa LGBT osoba u Beogradu godinu dana ranije. Upravo zato Zagreb Pride ima snažan regionalni karakter i podržava sudjelovanje LGBTIQ osoba iz zapadno balkanske regije na zagrebačkoj Povorci ponosa.

Povorke ponosa održavaju se diljem svijeta od 1970. godine kao obljetnica sukoba građana i građanki s policijom ispred njujorškog kluba The Stonewall Inn, u četvrti Greenwich Village, u ulici Christopher u noći s 27. na 28. lipnja 1969. Održavaju se uglavnom u lipnju i srpnju pod različitim imenima, no najčešće kao «Pride» ili«Christopher Street Day»CSD»).  Pride povorke proširile su se diljem svijeta kao znak vidljivosti LGBT osoba i kao oblik sjećanja na prvu pobunu lezbi, pedera i trandži. U početku su se obljetnice Stonvolške pobune nazivale Danima oslobođenja Ulice Christopher, ili Dani gej oslobođenja, no prosvjedi dobivaju ime “Pride” od kraja ’70-ih godina, kada je biseksualna i feministička aktivistkinja Brenda Howard osmislila koncept “gay” ponosa i manifestaciju nazvala Pride.

Prve obljetnice, ujedno i prve povorke ponosa, održane su u San Franciscu i New Yorku 1970. pod nazivom “Christopher Street Gay Liberation Day March”. Upravo se zato u Njemačkoj i Švicarskoj ova manifestacija zove Christopher Street Day ili skraćeno CSD.

[English]

Zagreb Pride March is the most important annual protest, demonstration and public political gathering of lesbians, bisexuals, transgender, transsexual, intersexual and queer persons.

Zagreb Pride March considers itself to be a successor of international Pride movement, emerging from the Stonewall rebellion and ˝Gay Liberation Front˝.

The first Zagreb Pride March was organized on June 29th 2002. It was initiated by lesbian activist community because of the traumatic experience of several women from Croatia after participation in the attempt of celebration of LGBT Pride Day in Belgrade one year earlier. Consequently, Zagreb Pride has a strong regional character and supports participation of LGBTIQ persons from the Western Balkan region.

Pride Marches are being held around the world since 1970s as an anniversary of conflict between the citizens and police in front of the New York club The Stonewall Inn, on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village neighborhood in the night from 27 to 28 June 1969. They are held mostly in June and July, under different names, but most commonly as ˝Pride˝ or ˝Christopher Street Day˝ (˝CSD˝). Pride Marches have spread around the world as a sign of visibility of LGBT people and as a form of memory of the first rebellion of dykes, faggots and trannies. Initially, Stonewall rebellion anniversaries were called ˝Days of Christopher Street Liberation˝ or ˝Gay Liberation Days˝, but by the end of 1970s when bisexual and feminist activist Brenda Howard created the concept of ˝gay˝ pride, protests are being called ˝Pride˝.

The first anniversaries, which were also the first pride marches, were held in San Francisco and New York in 1970s under the name ˝Christopher Street Gay Liberation Day March˝. Because of this, in Germany and Switzerland the event is still being called ˝Christopher Street Day˝ or ˝CSD˝.
