Gay pride 2018 in Pompeii

Next edition of the Gay Pride in Campania will take place at Pompei on the 30th June 2018.

The decision was taken unanimously by the collectives, LGBT movements and associations of the region during the Campania Rainbow Coordination Assembly.

For months at the headquarters of the Arcigay, they have been developing the itinerary that will be followed by the procession in a city, which in itself is hosting every day thousands of pilgrims coming from every part of the world to visit the famous Marian shrine that exists there.

The last aspect has really aroused numerous criticisms and perplexities: some Catholic associations apart from expressing their dissent towards an event that will take place in a city impregnated by religious spirit, wonder how all that flow of people who will rush to participate at the event could be managed and contained.

As for the contestations, the purpose of the Gay Pride is precisely that of stirring up consciences and of focusing on issues such as the egalitarian marriage, the defense of the secularism of democratic institutions and the defense of the LGBT community instances after the law Cirinnà, hoping as always that this could become an opportunity for growth and confrontation in the territory on civil rights and citizenship of all men and women.

The term Gay Pride, refers to being proud of what one is, through a march that recalls the Stonewall’s revolts in 1969 when there were violent clashes between the police and homosexuals in New York following an incident occurred in the gay bar “Stonewall Inn”, where the transsexual Sylvia Rivera, became a symbol of the uprising as she threw a bottle against a policeman.

From there, this event was then extended to various parts of the world until it arrived in Italy where the LGBT communities of their respective cities and regions, want to emphasize the inequality in the legal treatment that all these people suffer.

Taking the field together with LGBT communities, means wanting to affirm all together that there is hope that things will improve and that the many struggles, pain and people who gave their lives will not be forgotten in order to affirm the right to love whoever they want.


Since Pompeii will see the influx of numerous participants in the Gay Pride 2018 many people, to avoid clogging the city, are choosing to stay in the nearby city of Sorrento.

Its position on a tufaceous terrace overlooking the Gulf of Naples and its breathtaking landscapes make it the ideal destination for those who want to indulge in a bit of relaxation away from the stress of the city.

Sorrento is in fact a city rich on the historical, artistic but also the gastronomic point of view, offering a variety of services as well as being well connected to other cities such as Amalfi, Capri and Positano.

Here is where the Gay Pride can become an opportunity to enjoy a romantic weekend together, to discover the wonders that the Sorrento coast has to offer.


Be pride, be smart!

Stay in one of our Hotel in Sorrento to enjoy the coast.
