Here's a list of events that are happening in Cape Town from 02 March until 11 March 2018.

Cape Town Pride Mardi Gras 2018

OUTReach Africa hosts Cape Town Pride and multiple LGBTQI+ events and publications in Cape Town and and surrounds. 

Pride provides a platform for every part of Cape Town’s LGBTQI+ community (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, intersex, non-binary, asexual, polysexual, genderqueer and gender variant people) to raise awareness of LGBTQI+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow them to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing. 

The annual Parade through the heart of the CBD gives queer people a chance to be visible and speak loudly to the rest of the city about what they  have achieved, how far we have come and what is still needed.

Pride includes people of every race and faith, whether disabled or able-bodied, and all sexualities and genders including lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, queer, questioning, intersex, trans, genderqueer, gender variant or non-binary as well as straight and cis allies. Cape Town Pride is run entirely by volunteers.
