Helping out at Pride

When the rainbow flags fly in the heart of the Salzkammergut, it is also an invitation to the public to show solidarity, because help and support is still needed. Both in front of and behind the scenes, there are countless opportunities to get actively involved. Companies, organisations, associations and private individuals are cordially invited to get involved, whether as helpers, private donations, donations in kind or sponsorship.

Our first SalzkammerPride is being planned by a colourful group of committed queers and allies. Above all, we are united by a personal connection to the Salzkammergut (even though not all of us live here) and the desire to set a visible sign for diversity and acceptance in the region with a happy and peaceful Pride. This event is organised purely on a voluntary basis and is financed by private donations, but is an associated project of the European Capital of Culture.


In order to facilitate the exchange of experiences among like-minded people and those looking for a queer community in rural areas, the Frauen*anlaufstellen are contributing to the establishment of a queer community in the Salzkammergut with this project. The aim is to initially provide a home base and infrastructure for an active community that will exist beyond the duration of the project. The second goal is an experimental short film series and artistic photo positions that communicate queer life in the Salzkammergut via social media.

Accessibility info
Participation in the parade is also possible for people with limited mobility. The route is approximately 2 kilometres long and consists exclusively of asphalt. We plan about an hour for the parade, as we want to move at a slower pace. The Pride Village is also barrier-free. There are accessible toilets near the Pride Village. The info point, the stewards and the awareness team are available as contact persons. There will be separate quiet areas and hearing protection is available on request. People with first aid skills/paramedics will be present at the event.
