First Ever Theme Song for an SA Pride

For the first time ever a South Africa Pride has a theme song specially composed for the event.   South Africa, with its liberal Constitution and equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer plus (LGBTQ+) people, celebrates a number of Pride events all over the country.
