Pride is a chance to celebrate what it means to be a part of the LGBT+ community, as a community, and remember those who paved the way.

This year’s celebration is a significant year for the Pride movement and the LGBT+ community as we commemorate 50 Years since the first Pride took place in the United Kingdom.
