For the first time, Soweto will be a three-day celebration starting on the 28th of September and ending on the 30th of September — all at one venue. Unlike in previous years, Soweto online, Soweto Pride will be a three day camping celebration taking place at the GOG Gardens venue. It begins on the Friday with a pre-Pride party, continues on Saturday with the march and post-march events, followed by a star-studded after-party.
The Sunday will feature a pool party and picnic. There is also an all-inclusive weekend package available that includes camping, tents and access to all the events for R1, for two people.
FEW would continue
Soweto online policy of not accepting commercial sponsorships or presences at the Pride day event. Nombande explained that the other events are being organised by the venue and not FEW, but by holding everything in one location, it is safer for participants and is more appealing for those who come out of town for Pride.
It makes life easier for everyone, and with the camping option you can just park your car and attend all of these activities.
To us Pride is nothing without the political march and the political programme. Soweto Pride will also host a book launch, a workshop on how to organise Soweto online community Pride and a community dialogue on the importance of Pride.
