Pride Month

June is Pride month - a time to highlight and learn more about the lived experiences of our LGBTQ+ community.

In the UK, Pride Month takes place in June each year. As part of the month you will see marches, events, talks, and festivals that highlight LGBTQ+ causes.

Why is Pride so important?

Pride marches are an exciting way for LGBTQ+ individuals to celebrate their identity and feel part of a wider community. Seeing yourself in a community can be healing and affirming, helping people to feel less alone and understand themselves better.

By highlighting LGBTQ+ causes, Pride is a huge opportunity for the queer community to share their ideas and issues with each other and allies who can help with making their ideas happen or improve the experiences of LGBTQ+ people.

What's On
