Pub Pride 2023: Helping create safe and welcoming spaces for the LGBTQ+ community. Join us and Ask for Clive this year for Pub Pride 2023!

The LGBTQ+ community has come a long way in terms of achieving acceptance and equality, but there is still a lot of work to be done. One important aspect of this work is creating safe spaces for queer individuals where they can socialise, connect, and be themselves without fear of discrimination or harassment. Pubs and bars have long been popular gathering places for members of the LGBTQ+ community, and Pub Pride is an annual event that celebrates these spaces and the people who make them possible.

What is Pub Pride?

It’s a night for venues to celebrate your local LGBTQ+ community, and welcome Pride month in their home town. What you do on the night is up to you – live music, cabaret, karaoke, film screening, or just dressing up your Pub or Venue to show your support. During Pub Pride, participating pubs and bars may decorate their establishments with rainbow flags and other LGBTQ+ symbols, offer drink specials, and host events like drag shows, trivia nights, or dance parties. The goal of Pub Pride is to bring people together and promote inclusivity and acceptance within the LGBTQ+ community and beyond.

Why are safe spaces important?

For members of the LGBTQ+ community, safe spaces can be vital for mental health and well-being. Many people have experienced discrimination, harassment, or violence because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. Safe spaces provide an escape from these negative experiences and offer a sense of community and belonging. They allow the community to connect with others who understand their experiences and to express themselves freely without fear of judgment or ridicule.

How can you participate in Pub Pride?

Participating in Pub Pride can be a great way to connect with others and celebrate your commitment to building a better community. Check local listings to find participating pubs and bars in your area, and make plans to attend events or simply enjoy a night out with friends. The best way is to sign up here! Sign ups close the 30th of March! Make sure you take advantage of all the partner offers available to take your pride to the next level!
