Mission Statement

'Grimsby Pride’ is the trading name for a committee called 'North East Lincolnshire Pride’. The committee organise and hold an annual event to celebrate the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community in North East Lincolnshire and surrounding areas. As well as a celebration, the event raises awareness of the LGBT community and provides support for people, by offering a range of outlets where anyone can access and gain advise surround the subject.

Description

On 1st September 2012, Grimsby Pride was held at Meridian Park where it saw over 3,300 people pass through the gates. The day started at 11:30am, hosting a variety of acts including Kelly Llorenna, Scooch, Bears Aloud, The Dame Shirley Bassey Experience, Chasing Dragons, C.A.S.T, Jamie McKnight, Samblada and many many more. Our main stage also saw local performers such as Ryan Jagger and Curtain Up Productions.

Building on the platform from four previous pride events held in North East Lincolnshire, we hope to pursue the integration of the LBGT community and help people when they need it most. Working alongside Grimsby Institude of Further and Higher Education, our networking has widened greatly, therefore reaching more people requiring support and more contacts to provide it.
