Who are we & what is IranPride?


Queers from Iran in Pride Parade

The Iranian government has a long and devastating history of violating LGBTIQ Rights. We (Iranian queers) have been imprisoned, tortured and in many cases executed. At the same time, social acceptance of LGBTIQ remains low in Iran in comparison with other target groups of the Iranian regime.

Pride Parades that has started around 50yrs ago as riots against the discrimination, is one of the best events that call the queers of Iran out of the closet to fight for their rights… to make our Dream come true!

IranPride is Persian-speaking queers empowerment to organize & participate in Pride Parades.
