The 2024 route of the LGBTQI+ Marche des Fiertés: coming soon

Organized for the first time in France in 1981, this event brings together over half a million people in the streets of Paris. It's a one-of-a-kind event that can't be missed. You need to have been there at least once to experience the excitement, the festive atmosphere and the demands of this demonstration, whose objective is simple: to obtain equality and respect.

Until 2022, the Marche des fiertés will be made up of a procession of colorful and musical floats, and was an opportunity for LGBTQI+ bars and clubs, radio stations and other associations to make themselves known to the general public, through their floats and the leaflets they distributed. Many of France's largest private and public sector companies also had their own floats, to celebrate the right to be different in the workplace.

Organized by associations and their volunteers, the LGBTQI+ Marche des Fiertés includes some sixty associations. They are responsible for the practical organization of the entire event.
