From conversations in and with our LGBTQIA+ community locally and hearing views from the world over, we know an additional Pride event that is non-commercial, safe for all and not overwhelming, explicitly inclusive of all the facets of our community, and fights in a material way for the rights of all of us, is something both desired and needed.
Therefore after 6 months+ of research and talking to various community groups etc, we set about setting up People's Pride. We then went about finding members to join a committee and together since January 2020 have formed a community group with a constitution, set up a bank account, and started to organize an additional FREE pride event starting in Southampton in September 2021.
Who Are We?
We are a group of LGBTQIA+ people and allies with a vision to build additional events for the community and we encourage people and groups to join us in organizing these additional and complementary grass-roots events. We are a fully registered community group and are bound by our constitution a copy of which can be downloaded by clicking here.
