The Sofia Pride is a combination of socio-political protest and entertainment elements. The main objectives of the event is to increase the visibility of the LGBT community to support public debate on its adoption. The event will be attended by European politicians, diplomats, Bulgarian and international organizations and, of course, thousands of ordinary Bulgarians who want to live in a society free from homophobia.

Sofi Marinova finished 11th in the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 with the song “Love Unlimited”. “Love Unlimited” talks about love that has no limits, language or colour.
Любовта няма граница, език и цвят, Равна е за всички в този свят За теб, за мен, за тях!
