2018 Bratislava Rainbow Pride

Saturday was the 8th annual Rainbow Pride Festival in Bratislava.  This was the first year that IBM Slovakia was an official partner of the event.

Things have changed a lot since the first Pride back in 2010.  The support received was awesome!

The Governor of the Bratislava Region attended and there were embassy representatives from the United States, Germany, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Sweden, Canada, and Switzerland.

Besides IBM, there were employee groups from Lenovo, Accenture, Dell, Amazon, Ikea, and ING that participated as well.

I helped staff the IBM booth through the day and while over 25 IBMers took place in the march through the city centre.

Overall there were almost 4000 people that attended Pride.  I wonder how many people will show up in August at Prague Pride.

Here's a video that the IBM Communications team in Bratislava put together.
