A scorching sun and crazy energy. The Milan Pride 2022 conquer the streets of the city once again with a colorful parade.
We experienced it, from the departure in the Central area to the arrival at the Arco della Pace, from a privileged position: the electric bus of TikTokthis year used as a parade float for the occasion.
Rainbow flags and crazy outfits are not lacking. There are those who have sprinkled themselves with glitter and those who have chosen to carry a sign with them. Everyone is ready to tell “his about him” pridethe sensations of this sunny day in which everyone can tell about themselves in their own way.
After two years of forced stop due to the pandemicaround 3 pm the Milano Pride procession started from piazza Duca d’Aosta, in the midst of a wave of euphoria. Many embrace, someone kisses, just as many dance to the sound of the DJ-sets set up on the floats.
And if the procession seems to move in a unique and compact way, each one brings his own on the road message. Many turn a supportive thought to the ongoing war in Ukraine and are linked to this year’s motto: “Rights without conflicts”. Others, on the other hand, recall the still open wound in the drawing by Zan law against homotransphobia, sunk by the votes of the center-right in the Senate in October 2021.
“For me Pride it’s shamelessly celebrating who I am, surrounded by beautiful people “,” Pride for me is being able to be myself, without filters, throughout the day, without being afraid of being judged by the people around me ». These are just some of the words that the boys wanted to tell us, to let them pass, as well as their extreme joy to be present at this occasion, their desire to no longer be invisibleto be seen the way they want to show themselves.
The destination of this colorful and ballerina wave is atArch of Peacewhich will host the great final event of the pride month. A concert-event where celebrities and singers like Baby K, Francesca Michielin, Michele Bravi, Emma Muscat, Myss Keta, Immanuel Cast, the Karma B, Romina Falconi, Debora Villa and the drags of Drag Race Italia.
