Swakopmund celebrates first Gay Pride

The city of Swakopmund on the coast of Namibia celebrated their first Gay Pride on the main street of the city on June 4, 2016, Namibia. People from all over the country met for the first time for the march in Namibia. We are one of the most development and peaceful countries in Africa but we still haven’t a well-organized LGBT community, so today is an important day for uniting people. “Hopefully, next year we will be able to organize a week-long festival to celebrate love in Swakopmund all together,” said Florance Khoxas, LGBT rights activist and an organizer of Swakopmund Pride.
