Birmingham Pride 2024

Birmingham Pride held its first event back in 1997.

Pride has become one of the most important LGBTQ+ festivals in the UK.

  • Over 40,000 people attend the festival site in the heart of the LGBTQ+ village, over the course of the weekend
  • Over 75,000 people join in or watch the annual pride parade through the streets of Birmingham

Birmingham Pride’s aim is to play a leading role in building a community where all people are free to live without fear or prejudice. They are committed to challenging injustices, inequality and discrimination for all of their community.

Birmingham Pride weekend is the climax of year-round activity, where people can come together to celebrate LGBTQ+ achievement, life and love.

Birmingham Pride has supported numerous LGBTQ+ community groups, charities and events since 2014, raising funds for much needed services within our community.
