The organisers of Exeter Pride are celebrating after winning the Best Event category of The Exeter Living Awards.
Last year, Exeter Pride celebrated its 10th year and the event managed to grab the attention of the eagled-eyed tastemakers of Exeter Living Awards.
Speaking to THEGAYUK, a spokesperson for Exeter Pride said, “This would not have been possible without the support of our Sponsors, Market Stall Holders, Trustees and Volunteers that made the event happen”.
The annual pride has also launched a crowdfundier page to help raise much-needed money for the event, which costs upward of £30,000 to stage. The event is trying to raise £5000 in the hopes of keeping the pride free for all to enjoy.
This year’s Exeter Pride will take place on the 11th May 2019.
THEGAYUK are very proud media partners to Exeter Pride.
A note from the editor.
These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. THEGAYUK.com needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.
Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.
If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.
