✊ Marseille Pride celebrates its 30th anniversary:

Thirty years of struggle for equal rights, for social justice and to support victims of discrimination and LGBTIphobia.

For 30 years we have been bringing our demands to City Hall, which in the past has often remained deaf, blind and mute.

We kiss in front of those who do not want to see us married.

We denounce the blows undergone by our adelphs in the general indifference at the kiosk of the square Léon Blum and at the Ombrière du Vieux Port.

We gather for our dead, in silence, on the Canebière.

For thirty years, we have also been dancing, to show our strength of living and our concord in front of those who find, that we are, "always too much".

We look them "straight in the eye", to remind them that we exist, that we persist, that we resist against their obscurantism.

We, the heirs of Stonewall, are ready to celebrate these 30 years of struggle.

Our plural community welcomes all diversities and remains united to carry all our struggles.

In 2023, as in 1993, we are fighting every day to ensure that our rights never go backwards.

Together we are and will remain solid, alive and stronger than ever.

We are indivisible.
