Belfast Pride is one of the biggest festivals, Ireland’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender festival and ranks in the top ten largest Pride parades in the UK!
We celebrate Diversity with a ten day long celebration which will run from Friday 28th July to Sunday 6th August 2017 and we will have a diverse programme of events which we hope appeals to all tastes and fully represents our community.
Pride Day 2017 is Saturday 5th August 2017.
We have come a long way since 100 people marched in the first Belfast Pride in 1991, these brave pioneers paved the way for the 50,000 who marched in 2013 and inspire us to continue to work for a future without discrimination where everyone has equal rights. Belfast Pride is now a ten day festival that lights up the city with over 100 events that showcase the creativity, arts, history, culture, opinions and everyday lives of the LGBT community in Belfast.
Belfast Pride is a protest and a celebration – a stand for equal rights and a proud and inclusive celebration of LGBTQ+ lives. A broad coalition comes together under the Pride rainbow and we want to encourage more people than ever before to join together to make Belfast Pride even bigger and even more inclusive. It’s time to make a stand and it’s time to join in the celebration.
Belfast Pride is an independent charity and we rely on you to help make Pride happen – you can make a donation, you can give your time or you can help organise an event to help make sure that everyone can be included and represented. Go to our Contact page to find out more.
