So May’s been a busy month for us at PinkUk Towers with King Charles III’s coronation as well as the kick-starting of the main Pride season in the northern part of the world
It’s May, which means it’s high spring in the UK, North America, Europe and the northern parts of the world. It also means we’re heading into the Pride festival season for the next few months. Hurray!
Easter holidays are almost here. Besides being an important date in the religious calendar, it also offers hard-working people four beautiful pink days from the daily grind, with two public holidays in the UK, as in many countries.
It’s almost spring and some Pink shoots are showing through. We hope you’re filling your diary with things that interest you, whether it’s socialising, enjoying cultural or sports activities.
Welcome to PinkUk’s February news. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner on 14 February, we hope all those looking for partners or celebrating their partnership have a great time.
The new Respect for Marriage Act in the US is welcome but it’s only a safety net. It does not protect everything at risk from a newly assertive and conservative US Supreme Court.
Hey friends, wow, so it’s December already and we’re on the edge of seeing out 2022. Our small team at PinkUk wishes you a fantastic festive season and very PINK 2023! you deserve.

Given 2022's summer has been exceptionally hot following on from two years of the pandemic, it’s great to see the LGBTQ+ pride movement rally across the UK and rest of the World.
Sizzling summer prides to suit your taste, and there’s plenty more still to come in Europe and North America with loads of sizzling Prides stretching into September and beyond.
Happy summer! Same-sex freedoms in US, beware of Stripe, Copenhagen Pride.... As we enjoy Prides and LGBTQ+ events, we should remind ourselves that these freedoms are quite recent in history.
Three huge mega-anniversaries. It’s June and so the start of summer. Three anniversaries are coming along as we offer over 600 pride events on our listing.
As mentioned in our last news-letter, but worth saying again as we don’t get that many claps, we’ve broken through the 500+ Prides global total listings for 2022.
We’ve been beating the drum for the LGBTQ+ communities, prides and venues around the world in one of the most difficult times ever for LGBTQ+ scenes. With the crisis in Ukraine, we send our solidarity to our Ukrainian LGBTQ+ friends.
Welcome to our newsletter for March, a transition between Winter and Spring. March has several celebrations in the UK and globally, offering opportunities to explore new places as Spring emerges and travel becomes easier.
It’s February, so it’s LOVE MONTH. Our Pinkest love and congrats to everyone on 14 February Valentine’s Day whether you are in a relationship, looking to be in one or are just happily independent!
So 2022 is upon us. We hope you’re enjoying the final stages of the festive season wherever you are and that it’s been traditionally fun, so maybe seeing more friends and family, than last year.
See our latest listings for what’s happening over the 2021/22 festive season and beyond. Noting it’s World Aids Day on Wednesday 1 December, PinkUk founder shares his story of living with HIV.
This month, let’s all give a nod to the Trans community and to Trans Day of Remembrance (TDOR) on Saturday, 20 November. Zodiac, London's new LGBTQ+ venue in Camden, has its grand opening Friday 5 Nov.
National Coming Out Day Monday 11 October 2021. Each of us have had to go through this initiation. It can be a challenging point in your life but also something to look back on with pride if you live in a LGBTQ+ friendly country.
The brighter news for what has been another difficult year for pride festivals in the UK is that many festivals are yet to happen with some being postponed to the early Autumn/Fall. So in other words a backlog of Prides! Wow. Hurray!
Still time to enjoy summer. We send our Pinkest love to all reopening businesses serving the LGBTQ+ global communities. Hopes for the rest of the summer are rising in England as the country finally removed its non-travel restrictions.
Hope in sight for final lifting of lockdown. Hey, we hope you are starting to enjoy summer or whatever season, wherever you are. In the UK, especially England, the news on what we can and cannot do keeps changing day by day.
Updated June newsletter after Government changes rules on Portugal 28 June is the anniversary of the Stonewall uprising. It was a spontaneous campaign of civil disobedience against police brutality of LGBTQ+ people.
Monday 17 May in the UK is a red letter day or as we at PinkUk would say a Pink letter day for the LGBTQ+ communities for two reasons:
1. LGBTQ+ pubs, bars, restaurants etc can open
Our 12th edition of PinkUk’s monthly newsletter so our first birthday edition (lots of claps, please). We hope you’ve enjoyed the newsletters and found the information useful whatever your interests in the LGBTQ+ communities and their scenes.
Things to do right now... How about the virtual London LGBTIQ+ Film Festival? The festival will be virtual this year, and its film premieres will be available via BFI Player. It offers a dynamic programme.
Love month is finally here... January’s out the way, you’re paying off the credit cards :) and now it's time to look for something to do on Valentine’s on 14 February for that specal person, whether you live with them or not.
Welcome to the new year 2021. We at PinkUk wish you a very happy and hopefully better 2021. We can all reflect on the ups and downs of the last year, the time and social activities taken from us due to the pandemic and the lives sadly taken from this world.
Well it’s upon us - the festive season that will be celebrated in Pink Uk land and pretty much everywhere else, whatever the doom mongers, politicians and health experts keep trying to tell us and trying to dampen our spirits. We understand this year is different and everyone needs to act responsibly.
Thanks to those UK LGBTQ+ venues and organisations whom we invited to complete a short straw poll. In September 23% of venue organisers said they were less optimistic while 38.5% said they were more optimistic, 30.8% said there was no change and 7.7% said they had no opinion.
The times, they are a changin’ - in the UK at any rate. So, after encouraging people to eat out in pubs and restaurants in August at taxpayers’ expense, in September the Government sent a shiver down the spine of the hospitality, industry including many LGBTQ+ businesses.
Wow, it’s been a strange summer for many of us, whether for PinkUk punters or businesses. Many in the LGBTQ+ communities, who would usually travel and head to LGBTQ+ festivals and holiday places, instead have found (temporarily, necessary) health restrictions have intervened.
We hope you are managing to enjoy the summer despite all the restrictions and postponement of Prides with the pandemic. Many Prides are still holding digital events such as Brighton and Hove Pride today 31 July and Saturday and Sunday
Under UK Government health guidelines, pubs, hotels, B&Bs and other holiday accommodation will be allowed to open from Saturday 4th July. As travelling abroad may be restricted in some countries and not allowed for the rest of the summer.
We would bet that self catering holidays for residents only of each country will likely be the first sector to be popular, especially LGBTQ+ friendly options, because people will be keen to holiday in a safe environment after the easing of confinement rules.
We had always planned to provide a newsletter to PinkUk users and advertisers on PinkUk.com. With the health emergency and many aspects of LGBTQ+ life and events changing, we have brought the newsletter series forward.
