Prague Pride – August 2016: (1) The opening concert

The Prague Pride Opening Night (8 August 2016) took place in the Pride village on Střelecký Island (Střelecký ostrov) between 6 and 10 PM. Invited artists: Adam Mišík (relatively OK), the heavy-metal band Vladivojsko (very impressive performance!), and Jan Bending (didn’t hear about him, but it seems he scored in SuperStar, the Czech version of the Idol series – anyway, very boring!). The special guest was Omar Sharif Jr. (Omar Sharif’s grandson), a gay and LGBT activist (see below). Read more about this concert here. Let’s start with some photos of the people in the Pride village located on Střelecký island.
