Celebrating Durban Pride Weekend

To close out Pride Month, Consul General Anne Linnee and Public Affairs Office for U.S. Consulate Durban Jaclyn Cole were delighted to join a family-friendly LGBTQIA+ event during Durban Pride weekend sponsored by Same Love Toti.

Hosted at an LGBT-owned restaurant in Amamzimtoti, the event allowed families to come together to publicly support their LGBT children along with other members of the community.

During the program, CG Linnee shared her experience of attending Pride events for over 30 years both in the United States and overseas, explaining how participating as an ally at such events helped inspire her own sense of self-confidence and self-worth as a young adult.
