Thank You


Welcome After being unable to bring you Exeter Pride since 2019, we are so pleased that we can now return on Saturday 14th May 2022. It is important to us to be able to celebrate the diversity within the LGBTQIA+ communities here in Exeter and Devon. This year marks 50 years since the first ever UK pride, so we are delighted that we are able to come together to be visible, especially for those who may not be able to. The trustees and committee have been busy behind the scenes and have been heavily supported by previous members to overcome the obstacles and hurdles thrown our way after a global pandemic. It is also down to the commitment of volunteers that make Exeter Pride a success, so a massive thank you to all who have given up their time and resources to make this day possible. It has been a privilege to be involved and continue the work done in previous years, as well as bring you a wide variety of performances, stalls, LGBTQIA+ information, food, and, of course, the afterparty packed-full

of music and entertainment. Exeter Pride is a registered charity, so we rely on the generous support of sponsors and you to make the day as inclusive and accessible to as many people as possible. Exeter Pride is a time to have fun, meet new people, dance, sing, learn, and most of, to be present and show your PRIDE here in our glorious city. We hope you have an amazing day full of love and laughter.
