WHY do we exist?

To liberate every LGBTQ+ME person across Africa to live their most authentic life.

HOW will we achieve our purpose?

By elevating and amplifying Joburg Pride, we're not just disrupting the status quo on the continent and within our category. ​We're transforming it into an inclusive, continent-wide community platform that enriches lives beyond the parade. This ​unique platform is tailored to the diverse needs of the LGBTQ+ME community in Africa, making Joburg Pride truly 'The ​Pride of Africa'.

WHAT will we offer?

Beyond hosting the largest annual pride celebration in Africa, Joburg Pride offers a multifaceted platform. This platform ​fosters individual and collective pride by providing access to lifestyle-focused services, networking opportunities, and vital ​support facilities. It serves as a beacon of hope, visibility, and integration for the LGBTQ+ME community across the ​continent. Our platform empowers the community with an authentic voice and space to connect, celebrate, express ​themselves, learn, heal, and grow.


At Pride of Africa, we believe in creating a future where every individual can live authentically, with dignity and respect. That's why we are committed to ​aligning our mission with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as we recognize their importance in shaping a better world for all.

Why Align with the SDGs?

The SDGs provide a universal framework for addressing the world's most pressing social, environmental, and economic challenges. By aligning with these ​goals, Pride of Africa amplifies its impact, contributing to global efforts towards a more inclusive, sustainable, and equitable future.

Promoting Social Inclusion and Equality

Through our advocacy and initiatives, Pride of Africa actively supports several SDGs, including:

  • SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities: Our commitment to equal rights and opportunities reduces discrimination and marginalization, fostering a more inclusive ​society.
  • SDG 3: Good Health and Well-being: We address healthcare barriers and raise awareness about LGBTQ+ health issues, promoting the well-being of our ​community.

Building a Better Future, Together

Aligning with the SDGs is not just about fulfilling a global agenda; it's about building a better future for generations to come. Through collective action and ​partnership, we can create a world where everyone can live authentically, without fear of discrimination or prejudice.

Join us on this journey towards a future of pride, where diversity is celebrated, equality is upheld, and ​everyone has the opportunity to thrive. Together, let's make a meaningful impact and create lasting change.



Pride is being conscious of your dignity.

Pride is knowing your strength,
believing that you matter,
and celebrating what makes you you.

Pride is living freely, openly and authentically.

Pride is me, and pride is you.

I am proudly African,
and I am free to be authentically me.

From coast to coast, from East to West, through cultures and beyond the spectrum.

We are challenging prejudice.

We are encouraging change.

We are motivating our tribe.

We are celebrating our pride.

We are Pride. As are you.

Johannesburg Pride.
