Some history I read:

The first-ever African Gay and Lesbian  Pride Parade took place in Johannesburg in 1990. Fewer than a thousand people  attended. Some wore paper bags over their heads so as not be identified. In  subsequent years, Joburg Pride has grown in size and visibility.

In 2003, there were almost 20 000 participants. While it has also become  less political and more celebratory in nature, the Pride Parade remains, at its  core, a call for gay and lesbian equality and recognition of the nation’s rich  diversity.

In early 2007, a new section 21 non-profit company was formed to create a  world-class pride celebration.

South Africa’s 1996 Constitution is the first and only Constitution in the  world that explicitly guarantees protection from discrimination on the grounds  of sexual orientation. But despite many changes to the laws, lesbian and gay  people still experience discrimination in their homes, communities and  workplaces.

Pride is an international tradition, celebrated in most major cities around  the world. This usually consists of a parade or march, and associated  entertainment, social and educational events that aim to raise the visibility of  gays and lesbians. Pride also serves as a celebration of the LGBT community and  in many countries has become a significant local and international destination  event.
