The government's support of the LGBT community is in line with our slogan this year: ‘United We Are One.’ Only together can we ensure acceptance and equal rights. Now that we are organizing the Curaçao Pride for the 6th year in a row, and see the growing acceptance and interest, we can conclude that Curaçao is ready for the next step.
