COLOMBO PRIDE 2005

The first ever Gay Pride event in Sri Lanka was held on July 20th 2005 - a date that will be remembered for years to come. More than 300 hundred people packed into a leading discotheque in Colombo for a very memorable celebration.

Festooned with Rainbow Flags and fairy lights, the venue for Sri Lanka's first ever Pride celebration was transformed into a magical setting for this ground breaking event. Pride Banners flew high as Colombo’s LGBTIQ community along with friends and supporters from as far away as Paris, Dubai, New York, Sydney and Minneapolis (to name just a few), rocked along with their Sri Lankan friends, dancing and singing to hits from the 70s and 80s.

The enthusiastic crowd was entertained by Colombo’s leading drag artistes who performed flawlessly, thrilling the audience and heightening the energy in the room. For the 300+ people that were present that night, the significance of the evening was not lost as roars of appreciation rang out. It was indeed a night to remember.
