And the nominations for UK Pride 2018 are...

Liverpool Pride, along with Exeter Pride, Folkestone Pride, Isle of Wight Pride, Preston Pride and Pride Cymru, which would be held in Cardiff, have all thrown their hat into the bid for UK Pride 2018.

The final decision will be made at the UK Pride Organizers Network’s annual conference to be held in Blackpool later this month.

Steve Taylor, Co-Chair of the UK Pride Organisers Network, who also sits on the Board of the European Pride Organisers Association, and of InterPride, the international equivalent, told Gay Star News: ‘The UK has more Prides than any other country in Europe.

‘In the era of Brexit, we need to make sure that our Pride movement is on the national and international map.’

He furthermore added: ‘UK Pride helps us to do that, and the fact we have six bids shows how much our Pride organisations recognise it too..

The first UK Pride took place at Pride in Hull earlier this year, and was hailed a huge success. 

This year’s UK Pride saw a huge increase in attendee numbers, and visitors to Hull from across the UK. Licensed by the UK Pride Organisers Network (UKPON), UK Pride is the national equivalent of EuroPride and WorldPride.
