THANK YOU! Bristol Pride 2013 massive success. Bristol Pride 2014planning well under way! Pride week 5-11 July | Pride Day Sat 12 July

Bristol Pride is a week long series of event culminating in a massive free outdoor festival where over 25000 people attended in 2013 with BLUE and Sophie Ellis-Bextor headlining the free event!

Pride is a celebration of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, organised by the LGBT community for the people of the South West.

We Are: Proud is the chance for LGBT people, their friends, families and the whole of the South West to stand up and declare they are proud of who they are and their loved ones.

Bristol LGBT Gay Pride is the highlight in Bristol’s summer festival calendar with a week of great arts and cultural events culminating in a free outdoor music festival. 2014 date: Pride Week: 5-11 July & Pride Day on Sat 12 July in CASTLE PARK!

FOR BREAKING NEWS on events, photos and Pride 2013 like our new Page and spread the word with the event on Facebook

Pride Day is free but relies on your donations to help make it happen and keep it free.

Sadly not many people donated on Pride Day with less than 25p donated pp, which as put doubts on the shape and feel of Pride 2014, we may have to close of the site and charge a fee which in turn means more infrastructure costs and thus a higher entrance fee!

Please donate to help keep Pride and to keep it free!

Visible and Inspirational events that celebrate community

Community is at all our hearts but it can sometimes be difficult to visibly celebrate everything we have to offer. WE ARE: HERE does just that with events all year round to celebrate our diversity.

In October We Are: Here marks Black History Month with a special event to celebrate our LGBT BME community.

SAT 5 OCT | The Queenshilling

With our Djs will be playing homage to motown and early disco, as well as the influence of Jamaican music in the mainstream expect something a little different from the team with a real flavor of disco with reggae infusions, we’ve even got some ‘We Are: Here’ – Kingston punch at the bar.

BUT this is also the launch of POWER HOUR our new regular fundraising night at the Queenshilling!

For Black History Month who better than the Queen of Disco herself: DONNA SUMMER so expect performance and a power hour of her greatest hits to really get you going!

With special events all year round, from LGBT History Month, IDAHO Day, World AIDS day and more…. we are creating great events to celebrate and remember who we are.

Next Event:
We Are: Remembering | 9th Feb | Queenshilling

Back by popular demand our special We Are: Remembering club night takes over the Queenshilling for an LGBT Journey down memory lane. We’ll be spinning classics from the 70s, 80s, 90s & 00s as we look at the music and LGBT movements, memories and mandates that defined generations. So whether you were dropping that ghetto blaster and dancing hard to S Express when section 28 was introduced in 1988 or just slipping into some gold hot pants and ‘Spinning Around’ with Kylie when it was finally repealed in 2000 this is your chance to dance like it’s old Skool whilst finding out more about LGBT History.

Cost: £4 donation towards Bristol Pride 2013 & Bristol youth work.

Showcasing & celebrating diversity in all its forms.

Visibility for any group can be a struggle but by working together and creating high profile events across the city we can shout out to everyone….
We Are: Here | We Are: Proud | We Are: Diverse | We Are: Remembering
