Its About People & Bringing People Together

Plymouth Pride 2022 Announcement

2022 marks ten years since Pride in Plymouth brought Pride Events back to the city. We began in Devonport Park in 2012, moved to the Hoe and recently have been massively affected first by the elements on the Hoe and then, of course, like everyone else by the Coronovirus Pandemic. Also, it’s been increasingly hard to include everyone who wants to be part of the day in the eight hour

Where am I? Exhibition at The Box

In March 2021, The Box launched its first Culture Club programme, an initiative which had been devised to enable diverse communities to interrogate the collections held there. The first cohort of the group involved people who identify as LGBTQ+ and, in conjunction with Pride in Plymouth, the group met fortnightly across a virtual platform to identify and research elements of the collection which they found either interesting or challenging.

Welcome to Pride in Plymouth

Plymouth Pride Parade 2015
Plymouth Pride Parade

Pride in Plymouth is a non-profit Community Interest Company (CIC). Our principal activities all centre around bringing together groups, people and communities to both celebrate, promote and educate people around the diversity and talent that exists within our local Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans + communities.

LGBT History in Schools
Working within local schools

Through representation, education and engagement we work towards eliminating discrimination and social isolation in the city. We reach out to the wider population of the city, to help them feel informed and connected around the stories and lives of their LGBT+ friends, family members and neighbours.

We are more than a single event our team of volunteers work through the year supporting Asylum seekers and refugees housed in Plymouth fleeing persecution due to their sexuality or gender identity. We offer a third party hate crime reporting service where we can help you through the process and even raise a report on your behalf anomalously.

We work closely with Devon & Cornwall Police, work with inmates of Dartmoor Prison and support ex-offenders on their release.

Pride Social at Leadworks

Of course we recognise the importance of social events to ‘bring people together’ – Covid-19 has severely impacted on our ability to host physical social gatherings.

In 2022 we will work to rebuild our calendar of social events and fundraisers across the city. Reaching out to LGBT+ people in areas where they may feel particularly isolated from the scene and wider LGBT+ community.

In addition to hosting our own events we look forward to having a presence at many community events across the city to ensure our communities are both represented and visible in the wider community.

We are also well connected with the city’s arts, culture, voluntary sector and social enterprise networks contributing to the city’s Social Enterprise status. Many of our projects are in partnership or collaboration with one or more of these organisations. We look forward to strengthening these ties and further building the network in the future.
