This is an annual event run by local organisations and groups to advocate the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ).
The Nordic region has been known as a strong supporter for the rights of the LGBTQ community. The Nordic countries share many values including inclusiveness, freedom, equality and diversity. The Nordic countries all rank high in the index of protection for and rights granted to the LGBTQ community.
This event is about Diversity - Celebrating our differences. We respect everyone’s differences and freedom to express their love.
This is the third year in a row the Nordic countries jointly take part in the Hanoi Pride Parade. We come together with people of all nationalities and sexual orientations to celebrate the diversity and reaffirm the importance of equality and inclusiveness for all.
