The caravans of the 19th Rainbow Parade will roll along Vienna’s Ringstraße on Saturday June 14, 2014 and once again send a strong signal of a culture of solidarity, acceptance and equal rights. In its capacity as the most significant event of the lesbian, gay and transgender movement, the Rainbow Parade has grown into one of the largest annual demonstrations in Austria. Following the record number of visitors in the years 2012 and 2013, HOSI Vienna is once again, expecting close to 150,000 people in 2014.
Vienna Pride 2014
Rainbow Parade and Pride Village are held within the framework of Vienna Pride (June 11-15, 2014). As was done already in 2012, Pride Village – with its information booths, events and gastronomy – will pitch its tents at the Rathaus Square. Several groups and clubs of the LGBT community may thus present themselves to a broad audience within an approximate period of one week. The Rathaus Square, from which the procession will commence and pull along the Traffic Circle of Ringstraße against the direction of traffic, will mark the start and finishing point of Rainbow Parade 2014.
