Activities

In addition to being a landmark for LGBTQIA+ sport associations, for which it offers coordination and support, Pride Sport Milano is part of the Milanese and Lombard associative scene as a promoter of various other activities.

PSM at Milan Pride Parade

Every year Pride Sport Milano attends the Milan Pride parade. Over the years various wagons have been made, each with its own peculiarity and independence, but always in the spirit of the parade.

Staffetta del Pride di Milano 2020

In 2020, due to the health emergency, it was not possible to walk the streets of Milan with a float. Consequently, Pride Sport Milano, with the support of other associations, has designed and implemented the Pride Relay Race. This activity has symbolically replaced the usual parade, while maintaining the physical element of transit along the usual route and the most representative places of the city. A team of professionals has contributed to the filming of the relay race, which has become an integral part of a live broadcast on social media organized by Milano Pride.

Pride Ride 2021

In 2021, when the COVID-19 pandemic was under control, Pride Sport Milano was approached by Milan Pride to organize a symbolic bike ride that would replace the classic pride parade. Strengthened by the success of the previous year, Pride Sport Milano accepted the challenge and set in motion their volunteers and the typical internal committees. The idea was to create a final event for the RainbowRide, the race for the rights that has been around the world (almost twice!).
A little later, the Pride Ride came into being, a bike ride that, developing along a new route designed specifically for the occasion by Pride Sport Milano, brought a colorful whirlwind in the center of Milan. Starting from the traditional departure in Piazza Duca D'Aosta, Central Station, about 150 athletes of the Milanese LGBT+ Sports Groups, along with some representatives of the Rainbow Coordination and other people from various other associations, mounted bicycles, scooters, rickshaws and skates and created a long and colorful caravan. With almost 2000 eco-friendly balloons colored with the six historical colors, the Pride Ride carried a huge rainbow flag through the streets of Milan, passing through Porta Venezia, Duomo, Colonne di San Lorenzo, touching the Darsena, Sant'Ambrogio, City Life and landing triumphantly in Piazza Sempione, where the final event of the Pride was taking place. For the first time, even the Progress Flag was used for the caravan of Pride Sport Milano, and it was also the only actual flag to soar from the cargo bicycles.

Milano Check Point

In 2020 we organized our first charity Christmas raffle and during the event we expressed the desire to use the resources of Pride Sport Milano also in areas not strictly related to sports. The enthusiasm and sensitivity to the issues of acceptance, inclusion and health demonstrated by our sports groups have motivated us to create solidarity projects for charity in collaboration with other associations. Below we present the associations that have welcomed and shared our projects.

Together with Milano Check Point, we decided to converge our energies, so that it is possible to convey through sport the important health messages promoted by Milano Check Point. We have therefore started a series of online meetings during which Check Point doctors and operators offer their knowledge and experience to deepen the most current sexual health issues. We therefore create a virtual environment in which questions are asked, doubts are expressed and a lively and horizontal debate takes place.
