The colourful loud and proud Pride Festival returns to Plymouth on Saturday 10th August celebrating and promoting the diversity that exists within the LGBTQ communities. All are welcome to join us to show your support and acceptance of our diverse people and talent
2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the 'Stonewall Riots' that took place in New York in 1969 marking the beginning of the modern day 'Gay Rights' movement leading to organised activism in many countries across the world including the UK.
We are delighted to announce that in the addition to the main stage on the Hoe, we will be introducing a quieter acoustic stage. This will be programmed by Wonderzoo and will include an eclectic mix of musicians, spoken word, poetry and queer performance.
The Acoustic Stage will open at 1pm and run through to 5pm, we will announce the line up on our new website and social media very soon.
As part of the Plymouth Pride 2019 festival we are pleased to announce that in the two weeks leading up to the main event there will be an art exhibition of works created by LGBTQ Artist at Ocean Studios Royal William Yard. This will be supported by a series of events, talks and workshops that will be held at the Royal William Yard and other venues in the city. The award winning Plymouth LGBT Archive will be on show as part of the exhibition.
Pride in Plymouth is a not for profit community interest company managed by a team of volunteers. We aim to increase the visibility of LGBTQ people in Plymouth, reduce social isolation many people experience, to promote equality and to bring people together to celebrate and embrace difference.
