The month of May brings with it the Nice Rainbow Festival from May 17th to May 21st, 2023.
As a connection with International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, and Transphobia, the LGBTQIA of the Côte d’Azur in Nice is offering numerous fun and educational events over those days to promote the values of inclusiveness, respect, and diversity with the help and guidance of various local associations and businesses committed against discrimination and human rights.
This International Day on May 17th refers to the decision made by WHO (World Health Organization), to not consider those of us in the LGBTQ community as having a mental illness because of who we are around the globe.
With that, the Nice Rainbow Festival has been organized by the LGBTQIA Côte d’Azur Centre.
The LGBTQIA Centre is an association that for more than 10 years has been receiving visitors with questions about their sexual orientation and gender identity, and accompanies and guides LGBTQIA people and their loved ones in their access to rights, health, discrimination, rejection, violence, or assault.
The popularity of the LGBTQIA Côte d’Azur Centre brings people together and helps those with concerns discover a normal way of life for themselves and carries the demands that advance respect, solidarity, and equality in France.
Over these following days, a number of events will take place, with the main event happening on Saturday, May 20th at the Nice Rainbow Village at Jardin Albert 1er in Nice.
This is a free event, and open to everyone will offering a sense of belonging in a playful environment. There will be round table discussions, workshops, drag queen shows, dance, and sports activities in a carnival type of atmosphere brought to you by a number of highly regarded local associations and businesses.
