A celebration of united diversity

UK Black Pride is the only LGBT community Pride event to be genuinely designed, delivered and led by the full diversity of Black LGBT people.

 

An all-inclusive celebration

Our event attracts support from around the world and a cross section of society - Members of Parliament, trade unions, public services like the police and NHS, Black and LGBT community and voluntary groups, as well as young students.

 

Help us make a difference

There many ways to get involved with UK Black Pride; from volunteering, to promoting your cause or business with a stall, or showing your organisation’s commitment with sponsorship.
