For Immediate Release
Pink Loerie Festival partners with JoBurg Pride to ensure a stronger LGBTQ presence in South Africa
Johannesburg, South Africa (April 2018). – The Pink Loerie Mardi Gras and Arts Festival and Mr Gay World™ Event have announced its partnership with Johannesburg Pride. The intention for this partnership is to formulate a cohesive working relationship to better serve the LGBT+ME community.
This new relationship ensures the LGBT voice of South Africa is louder, stronger and more visible. The long-term intention is to improve the reach of the community and facilitate better social integration.
The first leg of the partnership will see both teams assisting at the Pink Loerie and Mr Gay World™ event to be held at the end of May in Knysna. The next step would be a collaboration at the 29th Annual Johannesburg Pride and associated events. Johannesburg Pride will be a four day event this year. All the details will be launched at Pink Loerie.
The festival now in its 18th year, will take place from Thursday 24 May to Sunday 27 May 2018, with the crowning moment of Mr Gay World 2018 to be held at the luxurious Villa Castollini in Knysna.
John O’Neil, Pink Loerie festival organiser, says, “We are looking forward to hosting the festival, which includes dance and music, creating a platform for artists, performers and singers to express themselves without limitations in an accepting and inclusive environment. Daily shows will be held at various locations throughout the town. Floats will add colour and glitter to the event while the Mr Gay World™ 2018 will see young men from all over the world compete for one prestigious title.”
The joint message to the LGBT+ME community is a firm “we hear you”! The focus will be on fostering closer working relationships with the aim of enhancing the development of the national wide LGBT+ME community.
