InterPod by InterPride Podcast

InterPride is proud to present our fourth podcast episode of InterPod, entitled Trans Rights Are Human Rights. Our voices matter and will be heard.

Member News!

Congrats to some of our Regional Representatives! After almost two years, regional conferences are taking place in person. Organized by CSD Deutschland, about 50 Pride organizers met last October in Rostock, Germany. The members of the UK Pride Organisers Network (UKPON) also met during the summer. Members of the US Association of Prides (USAP) are planning to meet in January 2022. InterPride hopes more administrative regions will meet in person in 2022 and beyond as we see some light at the end of the tunnel as vaccines become slowly available to our members worldwide.

In Case You Missed It!

News highlights from November 2021.

Tbilisi Pride

While Tbilisi Pride’s offices are being reopened after being ransacked in July, many wonder what is in the future. Police and court inaction to charge or convict those responsible for violence is leading many LGBTQIA+ activists in Georgia to second guess their involvement in the quest for LGBTQIA+ rights and equality.

Polar Pride

Welcome to the world’s most fantastic Polar Pride celebration, held in Antarctica! Polar Pride, which included a flag hoisting near the geographic south pole, drew an estimated 25 individuals. In the November sun, LGBTQIA+ persons and supporters from bases, including McMurdo, the continent’s largest research station, and the Amundsen-Scott, gathered to fly the rainbow and Progress Pride flag in honor of the community.

Venezuela Turmoil

As activists are killed and harassed, and HIV/AIDS service organizations are raided, acts of violence and human rights violations pile up against LGBTQIA+ people.
