According to the organisers, the March will gather about five thousand participants. They will be on the streets Vladimir and Leo Tolstoy to Lev Tolstoy square and the metro station “Lev Tolstoy Square”.
One of the organizers of the March Zoryan KIS emphasized that “Kievprayd” is, first and foremost, the human rights campaign, so it will take part not only representatives of the LGBT community, but also people with heterosexual orientation.
The public space of Ukrainian cities belongs to all equally. Each and every have the right freely to declare their demands in the public space by any lawful means. Attempts to dictate what public actions are acceptable and which are not, leading our society to a deadlock, – says the Declaration “Kievprayd-2017”.
