Prides future and past. Exeter Pride 2016

Details:

Exeter Pride 2017 will be the biggest free celebration of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) communities in the county of Devon - and is one of the first in the UK summer calendar of similar such events.

The ninth annual event will include the always popular rainbow flag parade from the St Sidwell Centre down Exeter High Street to Northernhay Gardens, Exeter Phoenix, Exeter Library and Rougemont Gardens, where a packed programme of activities will await.

Last year thousands of people attended Exeter Pride and those taking part in the parade included community groups, firefighters, police, students, trade union and business LGBT+ groups plus individuals.

The parade also included roller skaters, Street Heat samba band, a fire engine, an ambulance, Morris dancers and volunteers carrying a 50-metre rainbow flag.

Those who support Exeter's LGBT+ communities are invited to join in the 2017 parade.

The events and activities during the day will all be family-friendly and include activities for children, young people and adults.

Plans include a bigger Pride Marketplace, including dozens of stalls from various organisations.

Also planned is a heath zone, workshops, film shows, panel debate, trans workshop and many other activities.

There will be information from local, national and international organisations, demonstrations, as well as fun activities.

In addition to a full programme of stage acts from local performers, bands, choirs and one or two exciting surprise guests throughout the day; a yet to be announced headline act will be hosting the Exeter Pride Live Eurovision Party in Exeter Phoenix during the evening.
