The Western Cape Government deeply values the principles of tolerance, acceptance, diversity, and unity. We are a stronger province through our diversity, and we are proud to promote equality and individual rights. Regardless of race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation, the Western Cape welcomes all who call our province home.

The annual Pride festival not only promotes tolerance and inclusiveness, it is also a firm favourite of Cape Town’s social calendar, providing a significant boost to our economy and tourism industry.

I wish you all a wonderful and exciting Pride festival.

I want to wish all those involved in Pride all the best for this year’s event.

Alan Winde
Western Cape Premier
