Postponed not Cancelled...

Pride events hold immense significance in our society today. These vibrant and inclusive celebrations serve as a powerful reminder of the importance of love, acceptance, and self-expression. A beacon of hope for the LGBTQ+ community, pride events play a pivotal role in igniting a sense of unity, empowerment, and inspiration among individuals from all walks of life.

Chairperson Dan said,

Despite the committee's incredible efforts, Hinckley’s first pride event was postponed due to severe weather warnings. Despite being the right decision, it was a great shame for the local queer community, as pride events have the power to touch hearts, change lives, and break down barriers.

Local pride events encourage dialogue, promote understanding, and challenge prejudices and stereotypes. By creating safe spaces where everyone can feel accepted, respected, and loved, these events have the ability to transform communities and foster a more inclusive society.

But fear not… we have a new date!!!

Working with our partners, the local council and Hollycroft Park, we have been able to find a new date this summer. Pride will be coming to Hinckley, Saturday 26th August 2023.

Dan adds,

This is an incredible event for the local community of Hinckley and Bosworth, as events like Pride remind us that being true to who we are is essential and something to be celebrated. They inspire us to embrace our unique identities, irrespective of societal norms or expectations.

So let us come together, hand in hand, at these inspiring gatherings. Let us celebrate diversity, embrace our shared humanity, and show the world that love will always triumph over hate. See you in Hollycroft Park from 12.30pm for a day of love and celebration.
