• The 2022 Pride march in Paris will leave at 1:30 p.m. from the Michel-Bizot metro to reach Place de la République, via avenue Daumesnil and boulevards Beaumarchais and du Temple.

  • The motto of the event is in favor of the opening of the LGBTQI + archive center in the capital.

  • The city of Paris believes it has "fulfilled its obligations" by investing 300,000 euros to adapt a former post office rue Molière, near the Palais-Royal, and is waiting for the three associations with separate projects to agree or it will decide.

“The LGBTQI+ Paris Ile-de-France Archives Center is now.

On June 25, we will also walk to keep our archives alive.

Here is the watchword, this year, of the pride march which will take place this Saturday in Paris, as launched in a press release by Inter-LGBT, the association organizing the event which will start at 1:30 p.m. metro Michel-Bizot to reach place de la République, via avenue Daumesnil and boulevards Beaumarchais and du Temple.

"In 2022, despite the promises, the LGBTQI community in Paris IDF still does not have an LGBTQI + archive center that allows us to proudly approach our present and our future by relying on our past", adds the Inter-LGBT in this release.

Sea serpent

The opening of an LGBT+ archive center is a real sea serpent in the Parisian LGBT+ community.

The town hall believes it has "fulfilled its obligations" by investing 300,000 euros to adapt a former post office rue Molière, near the Palais-Royal, according to the deputy for the fight against discrimination for the mayor of Paris, Jean-Luc Romero-Michel, who spoke on the subject in mid-May during a press breakfast.

He denounces "manipulations and lies on this issue".

"We have the place, those who want this project have to agree," he said to the LGBTQI Archives collective, the Gay and Lesbian Academy and Lesbian Cultural Research Archives (ARCL) , three associations carrying separate projects to which the town hall asks to conclude a "management agreement" to finance the future site.

“If at the end of May, at the beginning of June, things are not progressing, a solution will have to be found”, warned Jean-Luc Romero-Michel in mid-May.

He could "decide for one or two associations" in order to obtain a rapid opening "by the end of the year".

" A matter of principle "

The city also asks these associations to find part of the budget elsewhere, from the State and the region.

"It's a question of principle because we know that over the years it will grow and we are not intended to pay for the entire operation of this project", argued in mid-May Jean-Luc Romero-Michel.

In its press release, Inter-LGBT urges "all public partners [Paris city hall, Ile-de-France region and Ministry of Culture] to provide a place and the public funding essential for the operation and development of the future center from the LGBTQI+ archive”.
