On Saturday, Helsinki Pride week culminated in a march of rainbow colors and a park festival just as colorful.

According to the organizers and the police, the march attracted about 100,000 people; triple the amount of last year, and It was the largest march ever in the history of Finland.

This year the theme of the event was “voice.”

The organizers wanted to highlight the diversity of their LGBTIQ community and make room for voices often left unheard or silenced in the society.
