Pride Month 2023: From Parties To Movie Screenings, All The Pride Events Happening In Maharashtra

Pride Month 2023
by Tooba Shaikh

Pride month of 2023 is officially here! This particular month is an important one as it celebrates the diversity of a different kind. The diversity of sexuality and gender! More importantly, it is a reminder of how many people, even today, struggle to be accepted in society, be treated with basic respect and even exist openly. Pride month is not just a celebration of queerness but also a clarion call for radical acceptance, respect, and equality. So here are some places where you can yell out “I’m here and I’m queer!”
