The longest-running political protest for human rights in Croatia, the Nineteenth Pride Parade of the LGBTIQ community, person and family Zagreb Pride under the slogan "Freedom inside and outside the four walls" will be held in Zagreb on Saturday, September 19, 2020.

Freedom inside and outside the four walls
This year, our "new normal" is that the Pride Parade gathers for the first time on St. Mark's Square, in front of the Parliament, the Government and the Constitutional Court. We will not be there by accident, we will be there to demand from the highest authorities of our Republic to tear down the walls that continue to restrict our rights, and our families continue to push the citizens into the second line.
We therefore demand that the process of amending the Constitution be initiated so that all families are equal in all rights and obligations. The time has come to amend the unjust and deeply humiliating provision on the definition of marriage to include same-sex families.
That is why we hereby call on all citizens to respond to this fight for equality. This struggle must be waged on the street and at the polls, in public and within our immediate environment, at work, in colleges and in schools, in virtual and real space. Only together can we defeat those who persistently trample and challenge our rights and their sponsors in St. Mark's Square.
That is why Pride, which has been fighting for equality and freedom for all people for almost twenty years, has become one of the most important protests for human and civil rights in Croatia. Whatever happens, the Pride Parade will always take place, in the spring or summer, and if necessary under a snowstorm.

Everyone and everyone who believes in wider social justice, solidarity and equality, in equality and security in our homes with our families, as well as in our streets and squares, is invited to the Pride Parade.
