The traditional Turku Pride parade is held this year on Saturday 27th of August. TYY, among many others, is taking part in the parade to march for equality, parity and for a society without discrimination. We also want to invite all the students of University of Turku to join us in our parade bloc. You will recognize us by our logo and our banner. No need to register in advance – just join us and celebrate!
The parade will gather at The Old Great Square (Vanha Suurtori, opposite of the Cathedral) at 12.30 and the march itself will start at 13.30. From the Old Great Square the parade will march to Puolala park, where an afterparty will start at 15.00. To prepare for the parade spirit you may bring with you flags, balloons, signs and other theme-related items. Student overalls is also a good choice of dressing.

At TYY we are looking forward to seeing once again a great amount of students in the parade. See you there!
