Phagwah Parade 2018 - March with Caribbean Equality Project | Saturday, 14. April 2018

You're invited to march with The Caribbean Equality Project in the 2018 Phagwah Parade Holi Celebration!

On Saturday, April 14, 2018, the Caribbean Equality Project will proudly participate in the 30th Annual Phagwah Parade in Richmond Hill, Queens, NY. In 2016, CEP made history as the first Caribbean LGBTQ organization to march and wave the rainbow flag, to uplift the identity and voices of the LGBTQ Hindu population in. NYC. Join us as we march for the 3rd consecutive year to represent the growing LGBTQ Hindu community and continue advocating for inclusion and right to practice our religious values equally.

Holi, or 'Phagwah' throughout the Caribbean, is an ancient Hindu Spring festival also known as the Festival of Colors. It is a celebration of unity, renewal, forgiveness and new beginnings. It signifies the coming of spring, the joy of friendship, and equality for all. The colored powders used in Holi represent love, happiness, and the freedom to live vibrantly, which are all principles shared and promoted by the Caribbean Equality Project.
