Gender - Joburg Mardi Gras: a new generation of Pride to be launched

Samantha Durkin – Former Joburg Gay Pride Festival Company Board Member joined us on the line. The board of Joburg Gay Pride Festival Company voted to end the Section 21 Company that has produced Joburg Pride over the past seven years. The Company was voluntarily wound up by unanimous resolution at a board meeting in March this year. Samantha explained more on what influenced the board’s decision. She is currently organising a new event for the LGBTI community, the Joburg Mardi Gras. The Joburg Mardi Gras will be a festival of cultural and social entertainment events, offering an unconditional platform for community expression.
