Pride Day Parade March | Saturday 8 July
Let’s all come together and march through Bristol proudly and visibly! Over 6000 of you joined us in 2016 for a bold statement for equality and diversity, to celebrate our community and to show that hatred and prejudice has no place in our city, or anywhere.
Let’s be a beacon for those many who cannot be out in their countries, to the 77 countries that ban homosexuality and offer lengthy prison sentences, to the 10 countries where homsexuality may be punished by death and to all those where people have been driven to suicide by bullying or entrapment – sadly some of these are EU countries.
We aim to raise our visibility and to celebrate our own diversity, we want you to come as yourself and for the parade to showcase and celebrate the L, G, B, T, + everything in-between and beyond. We have a wonderfully diverse community but sometimes it’s difficult for some of our community to have a voice or to be seen, Pride is your time to shine.
Even the parade costs money but we want to keep the parade a free event for the public to enter so we ask all businesses and corporate organisations wishing to take part in the parade that have not booked a stall or sponsored Pride to make a donation to us. Email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you to Aviva, Dyson, Lloyds Banking Group, Nandos, Network Rail & The NUT who did just that last year.
We keep costs and pollution down but not not having vehicles in the parade, vehicles would struggle with the route anyway, and you can still organise your group, make outfits and even make a walking float you can push along.
