The Pride in Diversity committee is regrettably announcing that we have come to the decision to not hold an event this year, in response to the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic.

We’re working towards our Hate Crime Awareness Week event in Autumn 2021, and then we’ll be back better than ever in 2022!

We are incredibly disappointed but are looking forward to seeing you on Sunday 19th June 2022!

Harrogate is a town famous for its spa, flowers, international conferences, The Stray, and of course, Bettys. Harrogate can be seen as a very rich town; with a great divide between both those who have, and those who don’t. However, one thing it is not famed for is its diversity.

So, in 2022 we want to celebrate this, for the fourth year. In June, we are holding a parade and party!! It will not just include those from the LGBT+ community, but those from other abilities, genders, ethnicity, ages, and socio-economic background

Our mission is to encompass life in all its diversity and to empower and encourage all to work & live in a fully inclusive arena within the Harrogate District.

Our Aims are :

  • To raise awareness of issues concerning identity and diversity.

  • To celebrate diversity within our community.

  • To engage the community fully in affirming differences.

  • To work towards a fully inclusive community within Harrogate

  • To encourage and empower all to share their understanding of diversity

  • LGBT pride (also known as gay pride or simply pride) is the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people as a social group. Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements. Pride has lent its name to LGBT-themed organizations, institutes, foundations, book titles, periodicals, a cable TV station, and the Pride Library.Ranging from solemn to carnivalesque, pride events are typically held during LGBT Pride Month or some other period that commemorates a turning point in a country’s LGBT history, for example Moscow Pride in May for the anniversary of Russia’s 1993 decriminalization of homosexuality. Some pride events include LGBT pride parades and marches, rallies, commemorations, community days, dance parties, and festivals.
