CAPE TOWN - Hundreds have come out to celebrate Cape Town's gay pride in the streets of the Mother City but not all in attendance are in a joyous mood.

The annual Cape Town Pride highlights human rights, in particular the rights of homosexual.

At today's march, some remembered victims of hate crimes and to raise awareness about safe sex.

We The Brave's Kaylin Mendes said, "We are here to celebrate pride. We are an initiative aimed at men who have sex with men to educate them about practicing safe sex and warn them about HIV, STI and testing."

But Free Gender's Funeka Soldaat feels the event is not inclusive.

"There are other people who have their own issues but are not given a chance to say what's happening in their areas, especially outside Cape Town, lesbians are being harassed."
