Eastleigh Pride

About

Why do we need a Pride we hear you asking? Well Home Office figures show that recorded hate crimes based on sexual orientation and gender identity increased by 45% between 2016 and 2017. In everyday life, we all feel like we don't belong at times. Pride encourages people from all walks of life to come out for LGBTQ+, showing their solidarity to the community. Pride reinforces a sense of belonging that is rarely replicated in everyday life. Our mission is to be fully inclusive of all sections of the LGBTQ+ community, to provide a celebration of the LGBTQ+ life and a platform to continue the fight for equality and challenge prejudice.

We are aiming to establish Eastleigh Pride on a sustainable footing and grow the event over time to serve better the needs of Eastleigh's LGBTQ+ community. Bringing you a fantastic line up of acts to entertain the crowds, a strong line up of stalls holders who will be promoting themselves and showing their support to the LGBTQ+ community – including organisations and services who support the LGBTQ+ community on a daily basis and lots more!

In recent, a national survey of 108,000 LGBTQ+ people has revealed more than two-thirds avoid holding hands in public and 5% reported having been offered "gay conversion therapies". These figures prove that society still has a long way to go to treat all walks of life equally and that we need Pride events to let the LGBTQ+ communities know that we are here for them. We stand in solidarity with them and we are here to fight alongside them.
