Did you know that Belfast Pride is run entirely by volunteers? It could not exist without them, and that’s why we need you!
Belfast Pride was founded in June 1991 and is an inclusive voluntary organisation that seeks to promote equality, visibility and inclusion for the LGBT+ community in Belfast. We celebrate the arts, culture, diversity and history of the LGBT+ community by delivering a range of events open to everyone that encourage interaction, collaboration and mutual understanding.
Belfast Pride Festival represents and promotes the LGBT+ community in Belfast by delivering a ten-day festival programme of arts, debate, family and events for all culminating on Pride Day with the annual Pride Parade through Belfast City Centre, Party in the Square and Pride Village. The festival runs over 10 days, with over 150 events over 60,000 people take part on Pride Day.
The Belfast Pride Parade is the biggest cross-community parade in the city, the main event in the LGBT+ calendar. It is a protest and a celebration, a call for equality, a stand for solidarity and a celebration of the lives of the LGBT+ community in Belfast and is about the positive messages and expressing support for the LGBT+ community.

Team Pride members get involved for a whole variety of reasons. Some do it to make a stand for Equality; to give back to the community; to gain new skills and experience; or to make new friends.
