Pride

In 2018, Stonewall went to 33 Prides across Britain - and met hundreds of people making a difference in their community.

From Swansea to Sunderland, and Edinburgh to Ely, we marched with LGBT people and allies, united by our vision of a world where everyone, everywhere can be themselves.

Four people at a Stonewall stall in red t-shirts holding up red placards including 'I will speak up for QTPOC rights', 'Queer diaspora', 'I will stand up for LGBTQ rights in my faith space'.Five people gathered round a red placard which says 'I will stand up for what I believe in'

Highlights of 2018

We featured some groundbreaking campaigners in our 'Prides for All' series, celebrating the success of rural Prides like Midsomer Norton, and looking to the future with Bi Pride UK which will be happening for the first time in 2019. We also heard from Finding a Voice and KeshetUK on engaging communities that are often under-represented.

This relationship we're developing with Pride feels empowering and reassuring.

Pride isn't just about celebrating  - it's also about community strength, solidarity and support in the face of hostility.

That's why we featured Trans Pride South West. Held after Trans Awareness Week, it's a space to share resources through workshops and performances. It's about strengthening a community and its visibility - something every Pride has in common. 

'I am starting an LGBT+ support group at my Catholic school' - Tyler, DurhamRed placard which says 'I am the 1st out non-binary person in my workplace - I am here for my queer students and colleagues.'

For us, Pride is a chance to build community and solidarity.

Prides are great ways for communities to come together. But we can champion LGBT equality in our communities all year round. Anyone can order a free #ComeOutForLGBT pack to get your community to show their support. Using #ComeOutForLGBT on social media can inspire others to play their part in the movement for LGBT equality too.

Organising a Pride in 2019?

Organising a Pride march, a community day, or other events is a great way to celebrate and reaffirm our communities' commitment to LGBT rights for all.
