WILTSHIRE'S NO.1 LESBIAN

GAY, BISEXUAL &

TRANSGENDER FESTIVAL

Swindon Pride was launched in 2008, with the first ever Pride festival being held in Swindon. In 2009, the Pride event was expanded to incorporate Swindon & Wiltshire Pride. This year will be our 7th event to be held in the Town Gardens in Swindon. The atmosphere within the park is vibrant and the Bowl Stage provides the perfect setting for a wonderful event.

 

 

 

As a committee our mission statement is to ensure that the Swindon & Wiltshire Pride event:

 

Promotes equality and diversity within the community.

 

Provides access to support groups via the event:

  • Works towards eliminating discrimination in relation to Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender people via education
  • As a community event, ensure it is accessible and free for all to attend

 

Aims for the Swindon & Wiltshire Pride Committee:

  • Raise sufficient funding to hold the event
  • Provide good quality entertainment on the main stage and bandstand to suit all that attend
  • Develop the different zones within the park to further cater for all that attend
  • Take the lesson learnt from previous prides and improve on all areas
  • Encourage more involvement from the LGBT community in Wiltshire
  • Expand the event to attract people from a wider spectrum
  • Attract more people from the surrounding counties and further afield

 

Aims for future:

  • Grow the committee and establish a good support network
  • Continue holding successful and safe events.
