YQA: PRIDE 2017

For the first time the Gay Pride was organized on two consecutive days in Mauritius in capital; Port-louis. Despite the presence of some anti-LGBT groups, the pride was a success.

Other activities were also avaible on our stand as well of the distribution of pamplets on the LGBTQI Politics in Mauritius.
