Pride Parades (also known as Pride Marches, Pride Events and Pride Festivals) are events celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) culture and pride. The events also serve as demonstrations for legal rights such as same-sex marriage. This September, Dundee will host its first ever Pride!
The mission of Dundee Pride is to take a positive stance against discrimination and violence toward the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, plus (LGBT+) community and to progress LGBT+ equality, awareness and inclusion within Dundee and the region. According to the organisers: “Our vision is to create a city and region where LGBT+ people have a strong sense of community, are a visible social group and can celebrate their history, activism and sexual and gender diversity. LGBT+ people will experience self-affirmation, dignity and equality of rights.”
