Pink Mynah Festival 2008

The first ever Gay and Lesbian festival in KwaZulu-Natal, to be held in Pietermaritzburg, will feature a parade, picnics, film screenings, workshops and parties.
The Gay and Lesbian Network will be hosting the festival from 29 November to 6 December 2008. The event encompasses World Aids Day and as such many workshops will be held on that topic.
However, it's not just all serious business - the festival kicks off on Saturday, 29 November with a carnival-style street parade through the Capital, and includes such events as nightly film screenings (courtesy of Out In Africa G&L Film Festival), workshops on various topics, an exhibition, and so on...
The grand finale of the festival is the Mr. and Miss Gay KZN pageant.
