The pride celebrations took place in the capital Bucharest and addressed LGBT community as well as those who want to find out more about the LGBT life and culture in Romania. The 14 activities (estimate) included theatre plays, movies, discussions, conferences and, of course, the Pride March which attracted over 1,000 people.
The Pride activities officially started on the evening of May 17 at the Control Club but during the day, activists held a small flashmob in commemoration of IDAHOT in the city.
