Here are our objectives
Strongly united and fully determined, we are taking a stand against all forms of discrimination perpetrated in the name of sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnicity or gender; we dedicate our efforts to the creation of a society in which the value of self-determination finds its full expression.
Brescia Pride 2017 has been supported by hundreds of associations. This year, we proudly re-propose this mechanism to support our cause. Click on the button and fill out the form!

On March 1, 2019, the following project has taken off: #fuorilavoce “A tu per tu” (#makeyourvoiceheard “face to face”)
“A tu per tu” (“face to face”) is a counselling desk meant for you: you may be homosexual, bisexual or transgender, or you may not have figured out just yet how you want to define yourself today. It is a space where you will be welcomed and listened to in a non-judgmental way. You may want to talk about yourself and about your life; or you may want to address issues concerning sexual orientation, your path towards self-acceptance, or any relationship difficulties you might be encountering within your family, work or social environment: whatever you care about the most.
The desk is also meant for you: mom, dad, brother, sister, friend or teacher of an LGBT person; you who want to better understand how the desk works, express your difficulties, overcome discrimination, improve the dialogue, accept change.
We want to offer a neutral space in which to approach the issues mentioned above, open to all those who do not feel ready to approaching an LGBT+ association directly.
Counselling is a professional activity that has the objective to increase personal well-being and to improve quality of life. Through listening, dialogue and the use of verbal and non-verbal tools, it helps you to facilitate and reinforce positive pattern of change and growth, taking your inner resources and your strengths as a starting point. It builds up to a relationship offering you personalised support: no conversation is off topic and whatever is important to you in the moment is what is dealt with. Specific objectives, duration and methods are always defined together with the counsellor.
At the counselling desk you will be welcomed by Sergio, a graduate from the SHINUI Counselling Centre (“Centro di Consulenza sulla Relazione e Scuola di counseling sistemico pluralista di Bergamo e Brescia”, https://www.shinui.it/it/)
The counselling desk is free, whether it is a one-time consultation, or whether you agree together on a path comprising several meetings.
The consultations take place under professional secrecy and in full respect of your privacy, in accordance to the Legislative Decree 196/2003 - EU Regulation 679/2016.
