The Pride March in Mauritius was cancelled after an armed mob of homophobes showed up at the march and threatened to harm Pride-goers.

Mauritius Pride organizers have subsequently received dozens of threats, including death threats.

I urge you to publicly denounce this attack and commit to keeping Mauritius Pride safe.

Pride events have kicked off in cities all over the world. People are taking to the street to celebrate LGBT+ community and visibility.

But Pride isn’t possible for everyone. In Mauritius, an armed mob of homophobes showed up at the march, threatening marchers and obstructing the parade until the event was cancelled.

Same-sex relationships are illegal in Mauritius, which makes Pride all the more important. But many are now scared for their safety and even considering giving up. If authorities don't take a stand, this could be a fatal blow to Pride in Mauritius.

Sign the petition urging the Prime Minister to keep Mauritius Pride safe.

This campaign is being run in conjunction with Collectif Arc-en-Ciel.
