Realiza-se no dia 23 de Junho a 13ª Marcha do Orgulho LGBT, organizada por um conjunto de associações e colectivos, com o objectivo de celebrar e promover a igualdade de direitos e contribuir para a eliminação de preconceitos e discriminação negativa das pessoas LGBT (lésbicas, gays, bissexuais e transgénero).

Este ano é organizada pela AMPLOS, APF, ATTAC Portugal, Clube Safo, GAIA, GAT, Grupo Transexual Portugal, ILGA Portugal, Janela Indiscreta, Médicos pela Escolha, não te prives, Opus Gay, Panteras Rosa, PolyPortugal, Precários Inflexíveis, rede ex aequo, Rumos Novos, Solidariedade Imigrante, SOS Racismo, UMAR, e UGT. Estas organizações, de diversos âmbitos, pretendem reforçar o compromisso da sociedade civil em prol da eliminação de todas as formas de discriminação com base na orientação sexual e na identidade de género e da sensibilização para uma mudança social e cultural na sociedade.

Algumas das mudanças necessárias encontram-se espelhadas no manifesto deste ano que pode ser lido em: http://marchaorgulholgbtlx2012.blogspot.pt/2012/06/manifesto.html

A Marcha terá início no Príncipe Real, às 17h00, seguindo pelo Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara e Chiado, e terminando na Praça da Figueira.

Everybody's Trans: Gender Oppression Hurts All of Us
When I was bullied as a child, called names, chased home from school, and sometimes physically attacked, it was because of my gender expression. The way I acted was way more feminine than how most of the people around me thought a boy "should" act. Though I was often told I acted like a girl as a child, I was also usually called anti-gay slurs, like "sissy" or "faggot." I was bullied because of my gender expression, but everyone called it "gay" years before I knew I liked boys, years before I understood I was trans.
