Nakshatra Bagwe, a well-known LGBTQAI+ activist and community organiser, was been named the organiser of the first-ever Vasai-Virar Pride Festival 2023. It is likely to be a watershed moment for the LGBTQ+ community in Vasai-Virar and beyond. The festival will take place on May 27, 2023, with the goal of having a good impact on the local community and promoting acceptance and understanding of LGBTQ+ individuals.

Nakshatra Bagwe is a well-known figure in the LGBTQ+ community, having campaigned relentlessly for queer individuals' rights and acceptance in Maharashtra and beyond India. Bagwe has long been a strong supporter for LGBTQ+ rights, and she has been instrumental in organising numerous community events and activities.

The Vasai-Virar Pride Festival 2023 is a one-day event that intends to commemorate the LGBTQ+ community's variety and resilience. It is expected to attract a huge number of LGBTQ+ people and sympathisers from across Maharashtra. The Vasai-Virar Pride Festival 2023 is expected to be a historic event for Maharashtra's LGBTQ+ community and a crucial step towards developing a more welcoming and inclusive society. We've planned a route for the Pride March that would take in several communities - temples, churches, and Vasai Road - to maximise exposure on the day.

Nakshatra Bagwe's communiqué on festival, "I know the responsibility of the first pride and something which is very close to my heart," Nakshatra Bagwe said of the celebration. I'd want to thank Shrey and Jay Kommana from Page G Events since I don't think this would have been possible without them. We were really delighted with the good response we received from the authorities and police officials, who gladly granted us permission without any difficulty. This festival is a significant step towards making society more accepting and inclusive of the LGBTQ+ population. I am excited to collaborate with the organisers and the community to make this festival a huge success."
