A statement from the organisers of Grimsby Pride reads, ‘Our Pride event, which takes place on an annual basis the weekend after August Bank Holiday provides our main platform for a celebration of the diversity of the LGBT community in a context of entertainment, inclusivity and fun.
‘The event is a focus for the visibility of the LGBT community and provides an opportunity to draw attention to important LGBT issues.
‘The history of the LGBT Community in North East Lincolnshire stretches over several decades from various self help and support organisations including telephone helplines, to sexual health based charitable organisations, various social outlets etc. However until 2009 members of the local LGBT community had to venture outside of our area to have a sense of belonging and cohesion with like-minded members at other regional or national pride events.’
Grimsby’s first pride took place in 2009, with a Pride called, ‘The Event’ it attracted 800 people.
The official afterparty is being held at Waves Bar, Cleethhorpes. Entry is just £3 from 6PM.
