Pride in Plymouth is a non-profit Community Interest Company (CIC) that brings people and groups together to celebrate and promote the diversity and talent that exist within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) 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.
In 2014 we took Pride to Plymouth Hoe one of the most stunning locations for pride in the UK, this was complemented by the first Rainbow Pride Parade through the City Centre – firmly putting Plymouth on the UK Pride Map.
We can confirm that Plymouth Pride will return to the Hoe Saturday 8th August 2015 with an even bigger event and parade making Plymouth Pride the biggest celebration of LGBTQ+ life west of Bristol. Visit the Pride 2015 Page for more information.
Pride in Plymouth is more than a single event – our volunteers work through the year on events and projects that ‘Bring People Together’ strengthening our voice and ultimately improving the services and social scene for all LGBTQ+ people who live, visit, work or study in Plymouth.
