Oldham Pride is a newly organised group (Nov/2020) – seeking to resurrect the very successful Pride events in Oldham prior to 2019. The previous Committee had disbanded after a change of management of the local Gay pub ‘The George’. We aim to be a focal point for the Community on 24th July 2021 and maintain a year-round presence online & in real-space, engaging with community groups, business, civic authorities and charities. We seek to encourage partnership working, support for isolated individuals and sign-posting to the diverse resources of our borough. We have set up a monthly Social Group with LGBT Foundation and with Oldham council called LGBTQ4U and we are engaging with many groups around Oldham & beyond.
Currently we are focused upon setting up an LGBT Archive with the Library Service, signposting to Sexual Health services (LGBT Foundation), encouraging LGBT youth services (Proud Trust), recognising the diverse needs of LGBT people of Faith and supporting the needs of older (50+) LGBT people. We are evolving as we consult members of the Community about their needs & dreams.
