The Nordic Embassies (Embassy of Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden) support the Hanoi Pride. Ambassadors, diplomats, local staff, family members - in total 45 people from these embassies – bike and walk together under the Hanoi Pride today, for the universal values of equality, diversity and tolerance.
The Nordic Countries are strong supporters of international human rights, including the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people (LGBTI).
The Nordic representatives state:
“This event is an opportunity to team up and to celebrate diversity, tolerance and equal rights for all.”
“Everyone should be able to love who they want. Be who they are. We all have the same universal rights and we all want to feel the same respect for our integrity and choices.”
