Our long-standing work together with the Helsinki Pride Community as one of its main partners continues in 2022. The Helsinki Pride event is slated to make a full comeback after two years with the timely theme of Encounters. This theme highlights the main mission of the Helsinki Pride event as a venue where people from all walks of life can learn from one another and form a lively community through meaningful encounters. The theme also encompasses facing up to your own unspoken prejudices as one step towards accomplishing both personal and societal change.
Borenius will be actively supporting the Helsinki Pride event, which will run for an entire month for the first time ever this year starting from 1 June. Over 100 different events will be organised over the course of the month, including workshops, exhibitions, gatherings, and seminars, before the month culminates in the ultimate party of the year, the Helsinki Pride parade on 2 July.
Borenius serves as one of the main partners of the Helsinki Pride Community by providing legal advisory services on a pro bono basis around the year. The fight for equality is a goal that is at the heart of our core values, and we are constantly learning how we can best contribute to a more equal and non-discriminatory society as an organisation.
