Europride is a pan-European international LGBT event, hosted by a different city every year. EuroPride 2015 will take place in Riga, Latvia on 15-21 June 2015.
EuroPride 2015 was awarded to Riga, Latvia after Association of LGBT and their friends MOZAIKA delivered a bid based on solidarity with LGBT community in post-Soviet countries and significance of strengthening the freedom of assembly and freedom of speech in Eastern Europe.
Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway make a special effort to promote equality and combat discrimination and hate speech through the EEA and Norway Grants. As a part of these efforts, the Association of LGBT and their friends MOZAIKA has received core support through the Latvian 'NGO programme' to strenghten its work.
The EEA and Norway Grants will participate in the EuroPride 2015 Rally at the Pride Park (Vermanes park) on 20 June 2015.
