Pride in Timor-Leste

July 31, 2019

By the Nabilan team

This month, the usual crush of scooters and cars along the busy beachfront road in Dili give way to a crowd of more than 3,000 people singing in a sea of rainbow flags as they took part in Timor-Leste’s 2019 Pride March.

The Nabilan program is an eight-year partnership between the governments of Australia and Timor-Leste to end violence against women and children. Nabilan is implemented by The Asia Foundation in collaboration with Timor-Leste’s Ministry for Social Solidarity and Inclusion (MSSI) and the Secretariat of State for Equality and Inclusion (SEII). The views and opinions expressed here are those of the authors, not those of The Asia Foundation.
