Plymouth LGBT Pride Saturday 9th August 2014

About Us

Pride in Plymouth is a non-profit community organisation that brings people and groups together to celebrate and promote the diversity that exist within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans communities in Plymouth. The information, advice and support made available through our events and the pride in Plymouth network with our website as the hub allows us to advance community education so we can work together to eliminate discrimination in relation to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (lgbt) people in Plymouth, the surrounding area and further afield. In 2012 we organised Plymouth’s first proper outdoor ‘gay pride’ that was held in Devonport Park – the event was a huge success with over 1,500 people attending. We returned to Devonport Park on the 20th July 2013 with an even bigger event. We are continuing to build on the solid foundations laid so that Plymouth can enjoy a sustainable annual LGBT festival that will be as big or even bigger than Prides held in other similar sized cities in the UK. The growth opportunity for Pride and supporting events in the city is massive, but we do need Plymouth City Council to recognise this and be fully supportive of the event to unleash this potential growth.

Transgender Day of Remembrance #TDOR2014
TDOR 2014

Pride in Plymouth received a small grant from the Plymouth City Council ‘Welcoming City Fund’ to facilitate a trans awareness event that was originally planned to coincide with Transgender Day of Remembrance (November 20th). However as there is another fantastic TDOR event happening in the region, it therefore makes more sense for us to promote and support that event rather than hold our own on the day. Pride in Plymouth are offering FREE transport  from Plymouth to Torquay on November 20th please note spaces are limited and will be offered on first come first served basis – So please contact us if you would like to take advantage of this. Join the event on Facebook We then intend to use the remaining money to facilitate a trans awareness event in January 2015. We look forward to working with other organisations such as Transfigurations, Trans Information, Proud 2 Be Project and service providers to deliver…
