Sofia Pride will be welcoming their first ever Eurovision Song Contest winner to the event – on June 8th, Netta will take to the stage. The concert that Netta will perform at will be held at the Soviet Army Monument.
Netta had the following to say:
“When you attack a community and tell them that they do not deserve the same thing as others, it is hard for them to believe in themselves and to respond to the blow. Many gay men are afraid to reveal themselves because they think they are inferior. We need to use the power of social networks and always put that discussion on. We have to have bigger Prides. Pride should become a national holiday, not a party for one community,” she was quoted as saying.”
