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.

Inspired by the writing of Jean Genet, this dance film explores becoming, melancholy, and the erotics of place through the human geography of ports and portals. Through the integration of a range of movement based practices, emergent professional performers and members of Plymouth’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Trans communities collaborated in the making of Heaven is a Place.
