On the occasion of the International Day Against Homophobia (17 May), the European Parliament will host a selection of pictures from the global photo exhibition Walk With Pride from 9 to 12 May 2011. Members of the European Parliament, staff and press will see the exhibition displayed at the seat of the European Parliament in Strasbourg.
The exhibition will be formally opened by Jerzy Buzek, President of the European Parliament, on Tuesday 10 May.
These images were taken by award-winning photographer Charles Meacham during the 2010 pride season, and showcase 11 different prides in Europe. The exhibition, a global initiative of the International Day Against Homophobia Committee, reveals the diversity of pride as well as the extent homophobia can manifest itself within societies.
The Walk With Pride exhibition will be shown in over 20 locations around the world in 2011, starting with an opening at the European Parliament from 9 to 12 May.
