About Cape Town Gay Pride

In 2019, Cape Town celebrates its 15th consecutive Gay Pride event. Spanning ten days in late February/early March, Gay Pride Cape Town celebrates cultural diversity and creates awareness for LGBTQ issues in South Africa and beyond. The theme for 2019 is 'I am me. No excuses. No regrets'.

This year's theme is focused on the LGBTQ community's continued fight for equality, and ongoing challenge against prejudices that still exist today. Nevertheless, Cape Town and South Africa in general have come a long way as far as LGBTQ rights are concerned. 2019 marks 23 years since homosexuality was decriminalized in South Africa, and 11 years since same-sex marriage was legalized.

Program of Cape Town Gay Pride

The main Cape Town Gay Pride Parade on Saturday, March 2 should not be missed! Also, the annual Pool Party at the Glenn Hotel is a highlight of the gay calendar in Cape Town. The Glenn Hotel is one of Cape Town's best gay hotels, and during Pride it truly shines.

All in all, expect nine days of parties, parades, and events! Set with the backdrop of scenic Sugarloaf Mountain, Cape Town Pride is definitely not something you want to be missing for 2019.

Stay gay in...
