Parade

#SOproud Pride Parade

Our free community Pride Parade is the highlight of the event, making its way through the City Centre, through the city’s historic Bargate before heading back to the event site.

Whilst we confirm the route for the 2020 event, check out these photos from last year’s parade. Which was our biggest yet, both in number of marchers but also in parade route length!

We are looking for the following volunteers to help on the parade:

Flag bearers: We have 3 giant flags as part of the march we need volunteers to help carry these on the march.  These are huge targets for photographs and social media on the day.

Placard holders: This is a very important role within the parade. Over 70 countries in the world have anti LGBT+ laws. We would like to have each country on a placard with the punishment for being LGBT+ on.  This will be a silent and solemn  part of the march to highlight the injustices in the world.

Apply to take part:
