Biosfääri goes Helsinki Pride 2023 – Joint Departure

Summer has started, and it’s time to celebrate equality! Biosfääri is once again going to Helsinki Pride, and we’re organising a joint departure for the students of Bio- and environmental sciences to the student block of the parade! Helsinki Pride week will be organized from June 26 to July 2, 2022, including many different events of the Helsinki Pride community, as well as the well-known traditional Pride parade on Saturday, July 1! Biosfääri’s joint departure will meet at 11 a.m. at Varsapuistiko (at the intersection of Kaisaniemenkatu, Yrjö-Koskinen katu and Unioninkatu), from where we will continue to Senate square a little before 12!

According to the 2023 report of ILGA-Europe, the European region of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association, the year 2022 was the most violent against sexual and gender minorities worldwide in the last decade. Therefore, we want to display our worry for the current extremist development, support equality, and show that we are always standing up for the rights of our fellow students and colleagues, family members and friends, regardless of their sexual or gender identity. No one should experience discrimination, violence or any other unwanted behaviour, regardless of gender, sexual identity or other characteristics!
