What is Queens Heath Pride?

Started by residents in secret, it is now out in the open, evolving into a full scale main event – our annual Pride (we’ve now done three). Each year our festivities begin with a march before various LGBQTIA+ performers take to our stage on York Road, outside the Hare & Hounds, an iconic music venue that provides the technical support.

We are working to increase the area of the event, while keeping its small community feel, looking at family specific offerings, involving as many local people as we can and creating a safe space for people to celebrate who they are.

Queens Heath Pride has a community steering group where local queer people meet sporadically throughout the year to socialise, discuss how they want the event to run, and work on ideas for year round LGBTQIA+ events in the area.
