Milan backs bid to host Europride 2015 during World Fair


(ANSA) - Milan, August 30 - The City of Milan has agreed to
support a bid by LGBT rights organization Arcigay to host
Europride 2015 in the city at the same time as the World's Fair,
or Expo 2015.
Milan's city administration has expressed "appreciation"
for the initiative in a letter to Marco Mori, president of
Arcigay Milan, which represents lesbian, gay, bisexual, and
transgender (LGBT) Italians.
The letter was to be presented Thursday, along with
numerous other messages of support for the Milan bid, to the
annual meeting of the European Pride Organizers Association
(Epoa), in Marseilles.
A decision is expected Sunday.
Milan's bid will be challenged by Riga, Barcelona, and
Manchester - other cities that want to host the event, which
usually includes a Mardi Gras-style pride parade.
"Getting the Europride in Milan....would have a great
symbolic value," said Mori.
Milan has already hosted nine gay-pride events over the
past 11 years.
