Mainz in Germany will commemorate the International Day against Homophobia and Transphobia with a Kiss-In and much more. The campaign ‘KISS THE PRIDE’ calls out for diversity and acceptance and invites everyone to join on May 17 to make the importance of IDAHOT seen and heard.
As last year, there will be a march towards the Mainz cathedral square, where they will have a Kiss-In at 5 pm, including a balloon release and hoisting of the large rainbow kiss photo mosaics.
This campaign and event is organised in a joint effort by QueerNet Rheinland-Pfalz e.V., an initiative which works towards a better visibility and awareness of queer interests in the region and beyond, and Amnesty International. QueerNet’s aim is to network different groups and organisations to work together on political and cultural project and promote LGBTI rights and equality.
