This year, over 30 official partners have joined to support the Helsinki Pride Week. According to Horsma, these partnerships and hundreds of volunteers are the firm foundation of the entire event:
“Our partners share the same values and they have the desire to develop their working methods within their organisations so that everyone has an equal opportunity to bring out their full potential”, Aaro Horsma continues.
Helsinki Pride is Finland’s largest and most influential cultural and human rights event. The event is held in June, and it is one of the biggest public events of the year.
