Gay rights group seeks to host Europride 2015 in Milan

(ANSA) - Milan, August 9 - The Milan chapter of Italian LGBT rights association Arcigay on Thursday said it would bid for the city's right to host Europride in 2015, the year that Milan will host the next World's Fair. The request to host the event, which usually includes a Mardi Gras-style pride parade, will be submitted officially during the next annual assembly of the European Pride Organisers Association (Epoa), in Marseilles on August 30. "Everybody on the planet should have full access to equal rights regardless of their sexual orientation or gender," Marco Mori, the president of Arcigay, said in a statement. Milan has already hosted nine gay-pride events over the past 11 years.
