North East festival-goers are invited to show their pride virtually this year, as one of the UK’s largest LGBTQ+ events moves online.
Gok Wan will join Miss Rory on hosting duties, as we bring Northern Pride Online 2.1 into your homes, mobiles devices and smart speakers. You can watch on Facebook and YouTube, listen via Pride Rado or catch the highlights on Local TV on Freeview, Sky and Virgin TV
We have once again made the difficult decision to postpone our UK Pride event, which will now take place from 22 – 24 July 2022.
This is not a choice we have made lightly and, although we would love to deliver a fantastic, inclusive event to celebrate the diversity of our community, our first priority is keeping our attendees, volunteers and emergency services safe.
Since we were awarded UK Pride status, our promise has been to ‘elevate and celebrate the northeast’s LGBTQ+ community’ and because of the pandemic, and the disproportionate effect it’s having on our community, this promise is stronger than ever before.
