Rome Pride 2023 started from Piazza della Repubblica: thousands of people in the square, thirty-five floats that will parade from Piazza della Repubblica to the Imperial Forums. “The resistance to this right begins”.
Thousands of people have already poured into Piazza della Repubblica for the Roma Pride, the demonstration for civil and social rights organized by a coordination of over twenty LGBTQI+ associations. “Queersistence” is the slogan of the procession, which from Repubblica will reach the Imperial Forums: many people are expected, “almost a million”, declared the spokesman Mario Colamarino. Rainbow demonstrations are planned in nine other Italian cities.
“Today will be a great celebration for our whole community, there will be so many of us – Colamarino said – almost a million, indeed I hope so because what happened this year with the sponsorship story has rekindled the fighting spirit of our LGBT+ community. Soon this square will be filled with people and love which is what we must oppose to those who want to make invisible, to those who want to hate and speak ill of us we must be proud of who we are: today we will celebrate and we will be ourselves”.
An event, that of Roma Pride, which is not just a ‘parade’, as those who try to belittle it call it. “The first pride was a riot”, is the reference to the Stonewall riots, considered the symbolic moment for the birth of movements to claim the rights of trans and homosexual people. And even today there is a call for resistance, especially after the revocation of patronage by the centre-right regional administration (which turned around after the controversies of Pro Life & Family).
“From today the resistance of our community to this right, to this government and to Meloni starts. What happened with the patronage of the Lazio region is yet another proof of how homophobic and scoundrel this right is. It’s a shame. And all of this on the skin of the citizens of Lazio and of our community”.
