UK Black Pride promotes unity and co-operation among all Black people of African, Asian, Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Latin American descent, as well as their friends and families, who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual or Transgender.

Our Team members are committed to producing an annual celebration of “Black Pride”, as well as organising a variety of activities throughout the year in and around the UK which also promote and advocate for the spiritual, emotional, and intellectual health and well-being of all related communities. Our aim is to foster, present and celebrate Black LGBT culture through education, the arts, cultural events and advocacy.

This is why UK Black Pride matters

It might sound nuts, but I didn’t identify as a person of colour until very recently. The term felt clunky and I’m still a bit at odds with it, but it is descriptive and inclusive, and anything that intends to do that has my vote.

Growing up, my mum said we were black, like our Jamaican and Turkish neighbours – “because we’re not white” – so I took that on for most of my life until I hit my 20s and found most of my friends, colleagues and lovers were white, and I was reminded of my difference again. Read in Full Here

Sadiq Khan has praised Pride celebrations in London as the “best antidote” to recent horrors with around one million estimated to have watched the parade.

The Mayor of London said this year’s Pride was the biggest ever, and had helped people to overcome the recent terror attacks and Grenfell Tower fire.

More than 26,000 turned out for the gathering, where the parade snaked along a 1.4-mile route through the capital.

Emergency service members who helped in the aftermath of Grenfell and the Manchester and London attacks launched the march on Saturday afternoon. Read More Here
