About Herts Pride
Herts Pride is Hertfordshire’s biggest LGBTQ+ celebration.
We are a non-profit organisation run by volunteers supporting the LGBTQ+ community both locally and nationally. We run an all inclusive event where anyone is welcome. This year, Herts Pride will be bigger and better than ever before. We will have a wide range of exciting stalls, fabulous catering, a main stage with a diverse mix of entertaining acts, and of course our legendary dog show.
We are proud of our achievements in having established an annual event where everyone is welcome to attend and celebrate diversity. Herts Pride includes people of all races, faiths, abilities, sexualities, and genders.
Although our event is local, our mission is global.
Despite great progress being made towards equality, there is still so much more we can do. LGBTQ+ people face discrimination everyday. During COVID-19, LGBTQ+ individuals suffered disproportionately more from mental health issues brought on by increased periods of isolation or prolonged exposure to LGBTQ+-phobic households.
Now more than ever, Pride is a time for us to increase awareness of these issues and join together to solve them. However, it is also a time to celebrate the vibrant, dynamic, and powerful communities of Hertfordshire.
All proceeds from our sponsors and supporters go towards the operational costs of running the event.
