UK PRIDE 2022

Our commitment since our bid for UK Pride remains unchanged, yet stronger than ever due to the disproportionate impact the pandemic has had on LGBTQ+ people.

 

We plan to...

- show the world that Newcastle and the northeast region is a celebrated LGBTQ+ safe place

- build our most inclusive and accessible festival to date

- bring more local performers and creatives to the festival celebrating our diverse community

- have the biggest and loudest pride march celebrating 50 years since the first UK LGBTQ+ March in London

- deliver our biggest free pride festival weekend ever
