Pride Day: Sat 9 July

Bristol Pride Community Fund

A fund for LGBT+ projects run by, and for, the community

Bristol Pride Community Fund has been created to provide opportunities and activities which enhance or improve the lives of LGBT+ people in Bristol and the surrounding areas. 

We provide small grant funding to individuals, collectives, organisations or small charities to deliver projects that address issues that affect us all, help under-represented groups reach out and help LGBT+ community events that just need a little support.

Previously Funded Project: LGBT+ Faces of Bristol

LGBT+ Faces of Bristol aims to represent and empower the LGBTQ+ community in Bristol, by hosting photographic portraits on their website, as well as sharing across social media. Bristol Pride Community Fund enabled the printing and framing of portraits that toured various venues around Bristol including the Tobacco Factory, Bristol Pride’s Art Trail and the Grain Barge.

Previously Funded Project: St Bonaventure's School Bishopston

Head of English with books

St Bonaventure’s School in Bishopston was awarded £500 to purchase books that represent as wide a range of identities, by buying over 50 books recommended for children to explore our diverse communities in an age-appropriate way.  

Each class chooses a book as part of their Power of Reading topic for the term, responding to the children’s experiences and backgrounds and integrating the learning across all subjects. The school’s library will also showcase a special section as a toolbox for children to read more about diversity as they wish to.
