We invited Mélovin to Munich as a queer singer and activist who courageously stands up for the LGBTIQ* community in his country. The list of his songs had been agreed upon in advance; the song "Bandera is our father, Ukraine is our mother" was not on it. We would not have allowed it otherwise.
Bavaria is Germany’s only federal state that does not yet have a programme for equality and against discrimination of LGBTIQ*. With a petition, a panel discussion and various actions, Munich Pride is putting pressure on the country’s state government.
