Upcoming Pride Dates and Locations this Summer

Upcoming Pride Dates and Locations this Summer

Pride is a truly wonderful time where the LGBTQIA plus community can be celebrated, and appreciated, as we wave the rainbow flag high to signify unity for this community.

Due to the pandemic of COVID-19, pride celebrations and events have been postponed or not celebrated as highly as usual, yet this summer pride is back and better than ever.

Below is a list of some dates for the most popular pride events that you must attend!

These include parades, music, and amazing and talented acts, all supporting the message to love whoever you want and to be whoever you want.

May Events

Some gay pride events during this month of May include Newquay pride commencing on the 14th of May as well as Worcestershire pride which occurs on the 22nd of May of this year.

Additionally, Durham pride is at the end of this month on the 29th of May. This accompanied by ten other pride events are all commencing this month!

The three I have chosen are some of the most popular, and most diverse in the means of location, which shows just how widely spread these events are.

No matter where you live, through a simple Google search you will 100% find a gay pride event coming up in the next coming month or so near – or in easy travelling distance to where you are.

Some of these larger events include the Portobello ‘porty’ pride party which occurs from the 11th to the 12th of June.

This is in Edinburgh and one of the events that should not be missed! If you have the opportunity to go to Edinburgh, or if you live in Edinburgh this is something that has become a fun Exciting weekend for all.

Further pride events in bigger towns include the London pride festival which takes place on the 2nd of July 2022.

This is a must-go-to pride event as the streets of London are filled with colourful and meaningful pride flags to ensure that love truly does beat all.

A very popular pride event also includes Brighton pride. This year this pride weekend shall be from the 5th to the 7th of August 2022. This is an event that will fill your heart with so much joy and unity, as you travel around the streets of Brighton which are covered head to toe in the exuberance and beautiful rainbow colours to represent how Brighton stands with this community.
