  • published DACR at Pride Parade in News 2017-06-30 12:33:23 -0400

    DACR at Pride Parade

    Stevesbue_zps57ce9345.jpg_c100.jpg

    On June 25th, Movimiento Diversidad organized a massive Pride Parade in downtown San José. Costa Rican government officials, corporations, and a handful of embassies joined in support of the LGBT community through Avenida Segunda and Paseo Colón. A record-breaking 80,000 people marched last Sunday.

    Democrats Abroad Costa Rica was present at the event. DACR proudly displayed a rainbow colored Classic VW Bus. Hundreds of people took pictures of the bus and were given Resistance Summer postcards.

    If you are interested in seeing pictures of the parade, please visit the following link: https://www.facebook.com/pg/DemocratsAbroadCR/photos/?tab=album&album_id=839899462831565

    We plan to participate next year. Stay tuned!

We will be having a float in the Pride March this Sunday, June 25th in San José. Please join us in showing our support for the LGBTQ community in Costa Rica.

    A Classic VW bus will be painted in rainbow colors, and we will march alongside with banners.

    If it is possible, please make a sign to carry.
