Pride in Plymouth is a non-profit Community Interest Company (CIC) that brings people and groups together to celebrate, promote the diversity and talent that exist within the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) communities in Plymouth.
Together we can work towards eliminating the discrimination and social isolation many gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (lgbt) people in Plymouth and surrounding area face.
Pride in Plymouth is more than a single event – our team of volunteers work through the year on award winning 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. This includes supporting LGBTQ+ asylum seekers and refugees housed in Plymouth, working with other groups and organisations in the city that support us in building a healthy and cohesive community.
Mayflower 400 (2020)
The year 2020 marks the 400th anniversary of the historic voyage of the Mayflower ship from the UK to the ‘New World’ of America. It is also the 50th anniversary of the first ‘Gay Rights Marches’ held in New York and London in 1970.
With support of a grant from the Mayflower 400 Culture Fund Pride in Plymouth will be delivering an additional programme of events to support the themes of Mayflower 400 – migration, tolerance, freedom and democracy. Celebrating the freedoms gained over the last 50 years for LGBT+ people.
