InterPride Official Statement On Kaohsiung Pride Winning Bid For WorldPride 2025

Release Date: November 16, 2021

InterPride has worked closely with our bidding member organizations for WorldPride 2025, including Kaohsiung Pride, over many months to ensure equitable and collaborative participation.

Over the past two years, InterPride has been going through an application process to gain consultative status with the United Nations to better serve the global LGBTQIA+ community. During this time, InterPride worked on aligning with United Nations’ requirements. Not doing so would prevent InterPride from gaining United Nations consultative status. At the same time, we have considered very carefully the overwhelming feedback we recently received.

InterPride stands for the human rights of all our members, including the right to self-determination.

InterPride would like to congratulate Kaohsiung Pride, who has won the bid to host WorldPride 2025 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

We look forward to continuing to work together with Kaohsiung Pride to have a successful WorldPride in 2025.
