We present the common literatures of Kolkata Rainbow Pride Walks over the years:



Routes of past Pride Walks of Kolkata

After a ritual round at the starting point at Park Circus Maidan, the attendees split into two teams – one when north, another south – to visit friendly and not so friendly agencies and individuals for awareness generation and advocacy. Walk concluded at Zeeshan restaurant at Park Circus, not the Maidan because the area was flooded.
