An event not to be missed, invite your friends and come with LOVE!

In August 2005 a social outing was organised to the sleepy seaside town of Southend-on-Sea in Essex. What began as a minibus trip to the sea, quickly developed into three coach-loads of lesbian and bisexual Black women making the first of a long and proud journey that has grown in size, stature and inclusivity.

During the build up to that one incredible outing in Southend the concept evolved for an annual UK Black Pride event the following year, where Black LGBT men, women and trans people, could foster a sense of pride in our identities. This enthusiasm from the patrons and sponsors who supported the launch of UK Black Pride on 18 August 2006 ensured the event was etched into LGBT history as the leading celebration of African, Asian, Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Latin American LGBT people from Britain, Europe and internationally. It also set the foundations to ensure that UK Black Pride becomes a permanent feature on the annual calendar of Pride activities
