Unfortunately, the iconic Pride Parade will not take place today due to security concerns. A lack of sufficient personnel to ensure security along the route has forced the organizers to cancel the event. The other events scheduled at the Esplanade of the Olympic Park starting at 2 p.m. ─ T-Dance and the Closing Show with Pabllo Vittar ─ will take place as planned.
