Five days of LGBT celebrations in Vienna

Five days of gay pride in Vienna kicks off from tomorrow with a 'Pride Village' opening on City Hall Square.

The annual event celebrating all things LGBT has the motto of "Proud by Choice" this year and from Wednesday the tent city outside the City Hall will offer a mix of culture, entertainment, food and information.

All day until 22:00 visitors can also sit back on sunloungers and enjoy the good weather with a drink in their hand - whilst learning about the city's LGBT community.

On Friday, the Rainbow tours detailing the history of homosexuality will be held again at the University of Vienna on Friday, 13 June. The tour will be held in German at 4.00 pm and in English at 6.00 pm.

But the highlight of the week will be the Rainbow Parade around Vienna's Ringstrasse taking place on Saturday 14 June from 14:00. By foot, bike, and motor, hundreds of thousands of people are expected to march around the city in a colourful celebration of diversity and anti-discrimination.

Following that, after parties will take place at venues around the city well into Sunday.  To find out more about what's on visit www.viennapride.at
