Our partners

Helsinki Pride has grown year on year in terms of the number of participants, demonstrating the strong support of the general public for equal human rights. In 2024, we have once again a large number of partners involved in our work to promote equality. Together they send a strong message for human rights.

With the support of our partners, we will enable a vibrant Helsinki Pride event that shines in all the colors of the rainbow and is free of charge for participants. Our partners are also an important support to our year-round human rights and community work.

We will publish all our partners during spring 2024.
