Organisers say the aim to build a community “where all people are free to live without fear or prejudice”.

The festival is supported by year-round projects and partnerships focused on improving the lives of the LGBTQ+ community in Birmingham and the wider West Midlands area.

Since 2014, Birmingham Pride has supported numerous LGBTQ+ community groups, charities and events, raising funds for much-needed services within the community.

It has awarded in excess of £353,000 and provided additional, accessible subsidies in excess of £190,000.
