First PoliEdro logo 2012 A fertile absence June PoliEdro is established a few months before the Pride, and because of the recent creation the association doesn't have many followers, it is therefore impossible to pertecipate officially as association; the time is not enough to organize the partecipation of PoliEdro to the parade, and maybe there isn't enough awareness yet, so members partecipate individually to the Pride Parade. This moment is yet very important for the association, because a new dream starts to form in the association: partecipating the next year with the whole association.

Although the group is small, a big sense of participation has grown among the members, who live the experiance to the fullest. Many members partecipate to a Gay Pride for the first time, motivated by that sense of closeness and community PoliEdro brings among them. Everyone, those who already have joined a Pride Parade and those who are there for the first time, has the opportunity to live the moment happily and consciously.

Besides the events debating the meaning of Pride, many other activities are organized in collaboration with other associations outside the university such as AGEDO (The equivalent of PFLAG in Italy). These groups and others which are connected to the organization of Milano Pride, involve PoliEdro and together they organize the 2014 parade. In addition to contributing to the organization of the parade, PoliEdro proposes itself to drive some rental cars at the head of the parade. This time a great number of students and members of the student body adhere to the event, and thanks to this the association gains grip and visibility in Politecnico and what seemed like a dream in 2012 starts to become reality
