Indie Pride – Independent against Homophobia is the Italian event where independent artists and music professionals join together to say no to homophobia, in support of LGBT rights.
Music is the voice we choose to say no to homophobic attacks, prosecutions, beatings, bullying that too frequently lead to self-harm, suicides and even homicides.
Indie Pride and its partners and supporters wants to be the stage from where to resound the need for a positive change and our fight to gain civil rights, and against situations and representations which have no longer a reason to exist.
Indie Pride was born in Bologna in 2012, when the city hosted the National Gay Pride. We felt the urge for more editions to be held yearly, because still very little has been done for a real fight against homophobia in Italy.
In this 2015 edition, taking place on the 24th of October at Tpo in Bologna, Indie Pride confirms for the second year its partnership with Gender Bender Festival, and sees an eclectic line-up of artists marked by an electronic flair: Dino Fumaretto, Sofia Brunetta, To You Mun, Ofeliadorme, Godblesscomputers, Populous e Marco Unzip. New partners of the initiative are roBOt Festival and uniLGBTQ: together with uniLGBTQ Indie Pride organizes an event to be held on the 23rd of October at the University of Bologna, where Indie Pride’s supporting artists Lo Stato Sociale, Altre di B, Ofeliadorme, Cosimo Morleo ed Mc Nill will talk about fighting homophobia through music.
