to read

This year’s Durham Pride took place on Sunday 26 May, marking its 11th year. The parade travelled through Durham city once again, celebrating and raising awareness of the need for more LGBTQ+ inclusion, equality and diversity.

Once again in the lead up to Durham Pride the city was filled with a variety of events, from music to market stalls.

Queer Diaries returned to Durham for the second year running, with LGBTQ+ adults sharing their teenage diaries and memories from their youth with open mic style readings.

At the city’s Gala Theatre, visitors had the opportunity to see a free film screening of ‘Flux’, a piece described as ‘grounded in the reality of life for young people exploring their identity and making decisions about their future’.

Still to come…

Durham Cricket and Durham Pride have partnered to celebrate Pride by dedicating Durham’s first T20 Cricket match of the season in support of Durham Pride.

The Pride in Cricket game will see Durham Cricket take on Leicestershire Foxes on Wednesday 12 June, from 6.30pm.

There will be live entertainment, Family entertainment and a celebration of Durham Pride as well as the Cricket.
