It’s been announced that a brand new LGBTI pride event will be held in Johannesburg this coming October, adding to Gauteng’s increasingly cluttered pride season. According to a statement, the event will feature a week of “edutainment” festivities including workshops, fashion shows, art exhibitions and movie screenings.
Shearer told Mambaonline that he is in discussions to host the pride march and post-march festivities in Rosebank, in the Zoo Lake area; a popular location in recent years for Johannesburg Pride.
When asked what will make his event different from the existing prides in the province, Shearer said that Mzansi Pride will have a stronger regional and African focus. He explained that he plans to bring together representatives from LGBTI communities in Swaziland, Namibia and Lesotho to take part in the event.
Despite at least five other pride events planned for the Gauteng or greater Johannesburg area around the same period, Shearer doesn’t believe that adding another pride to the busy schedule is a problematic.
The period from late September to the end of October 2014 will see a number of pride events taking place in Gauteng.


The enthusiastic Johannesburg People's Pride march ended in a joyous celebration of song and dance. The first Johannesburg People's Pride march took place on October 5 at Constitution Hill and the political nature of the event was clearly evident. Most poignant was the guard of honour for murdered LGBTI individuals, with their photos displayed on poles held high by organisers. After the march, the crowd danced and sang, then settled into the venue for a joyous celebration.
These include Johannesburg Pride, People’s Pride, Soweto Pride, Ekhureleni Pride, Pretoria Pride and now Mzansi Pride. The latter was to take place in September in Newtown, but the event has been postponed to October 26 in Sandton. It recognised that homophobia is intrinsic to the same system that puts marketing and money before equal rights and liberation for all LGBTI people.


The travesty of human rights represented by these many deaths and the problem of homophobia were really driven home as the parade silently passed through the guard of honour. There is nothing wrong with there being 15 prides – why should we only be allowed to have one particular pride?
The response from the Pride company organisers was racialised violence directed at the One in Nine protesters.
