Bristol Pride is a registered charity (1166817) organised by volunteers from the community. We work all year round to challenge homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia and promote equality and diversity, for all, through various events, school visits, consultation services and lobbying.
Bristol Pride is the chance for us all to work towards creating a better society together, for friends, family and allies to show their support and for members of the community to live authentically and proudly.
The Pride movement is a positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT+) people. Pride gives people the opportunity to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, and equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build a community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.
Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT+ rights movements throughout the world.
As well as tackling political and social landscape, we work hard to bring the community together to celebrate and create opportunities. We want to build unity and bring joy to safe spaces, as well as tackling discrimination. As well as working all year round, our main activity takes place across the first two weeks of July each year with events ranging from Theatre, Film, Comedy, Music, and even a Pride Dog show. Our two week Pride ends with a Parade through the city and Pride Day Festival on The Downs – See you in 2023.
Bristol Pride is managed by a small core team, supported by volunteers from the LGBT+ community who bring along their skills, experience and passion to us in between their day jobs. Let us introduce ourselves…
