Tbilisi Pride is a civil association of LGBTQI people and supporters. The organization annually holds Pride Week in Tbilisi, puts LGBTQI issues on the political agenda, conducts surveys, and fights for the civil, political, and socio-economic rights of queer people in Georgia.
We present to you the activities of Tbilisi Pride in the month of January 2023:
- The organization saw off the year 2022 with a grand night of drag ball, which was hosted by the club “KHIDI”. THE DRAG BALL: ALL STARS became one of the most memorable nights — new numbers by familiar and beloved artists, great music, New Year’s mood and a special guest, Georgian jazz legend Giuli Chokheli, will be remembered by the audience for a long time. Radio Liberty also dedicated a short documentary film to the ball.
- In 2023, community meetings traditionally continue at the office of Tbilisi Pride. The organization started the year 2023 with the screening of Ioseb (Soso) Bliadze’s award-winning film “My Room”. The crowded meeting ended with a conversation with the director of the film and a discussion about the film.
- On January 27, Tbilisi Pride hosted another community meeting, at which the organization’s office became a safe space for games, fun, and getting to know community members and like-minded people.
- In January 2023, the organization launched a new multimedia project “Common Language”. “Common Language” is a particularly important project for Tbilisi Pride – a space in which the organization will try to find a common language through dialogue of interesting respondents on the most important and controversial topics for the society. On the Facebook page of the project, you can see the first program in which women and men talk about feminism.
Tbilisi Pride is planning many interesting activities in February. In addition, the organization’s birthday is approaching.
