We are your LGBT+ charity, working to support, engage and assist the North East gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer community. Through our yearly programme of events and outreach work, we champion the pride cause across the North East region and beyond.
Our new mission is clear. To Promote, Provide and Protect. You can learn more about our mission and what we do here.
We wanted to give our LGBT+ community an opportunity to have a voice, to share lived experiences and stories on what it’s like to be a part of our community in the north east. Not just the happy stories of love, acceptance and of pride. We know unfortunately that there are too many stories of individuals living in hostile environments, victims of domestic abuse, prone LGBTphobic attacks, and many more challenges we need to still overcome.
Insight will provide a platform to share, to debate and to challenge our view of the world, to educate, inspire and promote a better future for our community.
If you have a story to share, an opinion to give, we’d love to hear from you
Whilst many pride festival and events are cancelled or postponed across the globe, there need is stronger than ever. And that’s why we would love you to join us for a day of special programming brought to you by the LGBT+ community, to celebrate our identity, reflect on our history and promote a healthy and more equal future.
Organisers from Northern Pride who were awarded the title of UK Pride 2020, have confirmed that the event will be postponed until 23-25 July 2021.
Earlier this year Northern Pride launched its UK Pride campaign to “elevate and celebrate the North East LGBT+ Community” with a series of events leading up to their huge festival weekend of 17-19 July, sponsored by Barclays.
But uncertainty over the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has led the celebrations to be postponed until next year.
Hosting UK Pride shines a beacon on a Pride and makes it a focal point for the Pride movement in the UK in that year, enhancing their position regionally, nationally and in the global Pride movement. It’s a similar model to EuroPride and WorldPride, and Canada has also followed suit.
