Sofia Pride is the biggest annual event dedicated to the equality and human rights of all citizens and the biggest event increasing the visibility of LGBTI people in the country.

Families and friends can provide a nurturing, inclusive, and supportive environment for LGBTI people, help broader society understand the challenges the LGBTI community faces, and promote tolerance between different generations and different communities.
