Prague, Aug 14 — The Second Prague Pride festival of homosexuals began here in the capital of the Czech Republic Monday, Xinhua reported.
"Our goal is to present the community of gays and lesbians to the public. There are many prejudices that need to be removed," festival director Czeslaw Walek said.
This year’s festival will include a pride parade in the centre of the city Saturday.
The event is aimed to "enhance people’s respect for otherness", Walek said.
In 2011, about 8,000 people joined the Pride Parade, but Walek said he believed the number this year would be higher.
