We are a group of enthusiastic volunteers and we felt that in today’s climate of increasing intolerance, we need to celebrate diversity and tolerance in our community by organising the First Clacton Pride event. We want to honour the history of the LGBT movement worldwide and follow in the steps of other Pride organisations worldwide by celebrating all that makes us different and all that makes us equal.
We have planned a fun event but we need to raise funds for venue hire, insurance, security, paying acts that will participate. To this end, we need to spend the next months fundraising.
We are looking for the opportunity to connect with other established Pride organisations, for advice, support, networking and funding ideas. Right now we are working to raise our profile in the community, we aim to become a social hub for the LGBTQ+ community in our town and break down barriers to communication and fighting prejudice that still exists in our town.
Please visit our GoFundMe page, we aim to keep the first Clacton Pride event free to all, so we will fundraise intensively in the following months, we are just at the beginning of our journey so we need all the help we can get: https://www.gofundme.com/f/The-First-Clacton-Pride-Event
