Celebration and Protest: A Comparative Study of Pride Parades in Six European Countries

Since the 1970s when the first Pride demonstrations were held in the US, Pride parades are now staged in many countries across the world mounting challenges for the recognition of LGBT people. The project seeks to uncover the dynamics producing similarities and differences between LGBT pride parades using questionaire data collected during Pride demonstrations held in six European countries during 2012 (Czech Republic, Italy, Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK) and qualitative interviews with protest organizers.
