Doncaster Pride is a registered Charity that works for and on behalf of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBTQ+) community in Doncaster.
Doncaster Pride's annual event takes place every year in August.
2021 we move to Elmfield Park after 6 years in Sir Nigel Gresley Square, 3 at The Keepmoat Stadium and prior to that 1 year at The Racecourse and 3 in Doncaster Market Square.
The event itself is a street festival of colour and music/variety running from mid-afternoon through to the evening and is a celebratory event open to anyone and free of charge to attend.
Pride events traditionally are held in celebration of the LBGTQ+ community but in recent years have become celebrations of unity and Doncaster specifically attracts an audience of around two-thirds identifying as gay.
Sometimes we're asked why we still do Pride events "these days"..... Well, it’s only just over 50 years ago on the 28th June 1969 in New York that the Stonewall Riots marked the start of a fight for gay rights and a year later saw the first EVER Pride in New York.
We celebrate Pride to thank every single person in the short history of gay rights for their personal sacrifices and their fight that has brought us to where we are today and Doncaster Pride is a celebration of this.
