TAKE PART AT PRIDE

In 2022 when Northern Pride delivered UK Pride, there was a promise to 'elevate and celebrate the north easts LGBTQIA+ community'. 

And part of that promise was a departure from previous years, where the emphasis was more on celebrating the talent within the region’s LGBTQIA+ community and giving them a platform, rather than a program of big-name celebrities. And the success of that direction has led the team behind Northern Pride to start the search for individuals and groups to be involved in 2023.

In fact, 90 percent of all the performers, creatives, artists, and activists, who appeared on the main stage were from the community and from the region as a whole.

We received some incredible feedback from those individuals and the attendees of the event. Ensuring a wide range of styles of music and genres, dance performances, and multicultural experiences meant that everyone across the weekend was exposed to something new, an act or artist they’d never seen before.
