Portsmouth Pride’s main aim is to create a safe space for everyone in our community. Pride is more than just one day.
In 2017 Portsmouth Pride was taken on by a group of local LGBTQ+ people have got together to create an LGBTQ+ pride event for the city of Portsmouth. With the success of the Main Event the team took on new challenges with a bigger event in 2018 and the launch of the Portsmouth Pride Youth Society (PPYS), with the aim to branch out more in the community.
2019 saw the biggest Pride event to date in Portsmouth, with amazing performance from local musicians, drag performers and the PPYS. Showcasing the community feel to the Main Day festivities. 2019 was a great year for the community events, with over 10 fundraising events, numerous community events and the first PPYS youth night.
The aim of Pride is to raise awareness through entertainment, and community engagement. For the Portsmouth Pride Team it’s about more than just one day.
