In Pictures: The Faces of Johannesburg Pride 2022


Johannesburg Pride 2022 was a joyful and defiant gathering of diverse LGBTIQ+ people and their friends, families and allies.

Held on Saturday the 29th of October, this was the 33rd edition of Africa’s original and longest-running Pride event.

Despite warnings of a possible terror attack from the US government, thousands still made their way to Sandton to take a stand for equality and visibility and to celebrate their LGBTIQA+ community.

The crowd came in all hues, sizes, shapes, ages and sexual and gender identities, representing an idealised rainbow nation, even if for just one day.
