Grimsby Pride is a charitable organisation which aims to promote equality, diversity and advances in education, in order to eliminate discrimination against the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Community. Our Pride event, which takes place on an annual basis the weekend after August Bank Holiday provides our main platform for a celebration of the diversity of the LGBT community in a context of entertainment, inclusivity and fun.
To date we have had 5 pride events beginning in 2009 with â€œThe Eventâ€ held at the back of the old Secrets Bar in Pasture Street. We attracted over 800 people to the event and began our working relationship with Pride regulars, Bears Aloud. Many of the participants at our events are from across the local LGBT community and are of all ages. We particularly encourage those who may otherwise feel marginalised.
The events we organise are about community not commerce and always offer a variety of community facilities. We work closely with North East Lincolnshire Council staff, elected Councillors, Members of Parliament, Police, and licensing authorities to ensure our events are both safe and successful.
