Queer Gulabi Pride Jaipur is the name of Rajasthan's LGBT Queer pride walk, first held in March 2015 in Jaipur and organised by Nai Bhor Sanstha, a community based organisation working for LGBT rights and development for the last 15 years.[1][2]

History[edit]

2015[edit]

The first Queer Gulabi Pride was held on March 1, 2015 by Nai Bhor Sanstha. The walk commenced from Chomu House circle at 4 pm and ended at Statue Circle, a distance of a kilometre from the starting point.[1] The first pride walk saw close to 100 people walking and participating in the march.[2] This march was a call for action, asking Union and state governments to amend laws, which would allow transgender people to avail welfare schemes such as Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme.[3] Following the April 2014 Supreme Court judgement on Transgender Rights,[4] the community marched to voice concerns regarding pending protections.

2016[edit]

The second Queer Gulabi Pride was held on April 3, 2016 and organised by Nai Bhor Sanstha.[5] Around 150-200 people participated in this march.[2] The community marched from Chomu House Circle to Shaheed Smarak.[6]

2017[edit]

The third Queer Gulabi Pride organised by Nai Bhor Sanstha was held on March 5, 2017. The walk started at 3:00 pm and followed the route from Shaheed Smarak to Albert Hall via MI Road, Panch Bhatti, Ajmeri Gate, New Gate and Ram Niwas Bagh.[7]
