Welcome to my City where the Pride is really pretty
My first Pride ever
For Kadir, who is gay, it was an emotional experience. He has never participated in a Pride Parade before. In his hometown of Istanbul, the Parade was recently cancelled by the police for the fourth year in a row. When hundreds of people crossed the ban and started marching anyway, the riot police used tear gas. Homosexuality is not illegal in Turkey, but Kadir still experiences a lot of prejudices and challenges because of who he is.
Kadir got quite emotional
One police for all
Anna Grúňová is a police officer in her hometown of Brno, the second largest city in Czech Republic, and was very surprised to see that Norwegian police officers actually participating in the Parade.
