Leicester Pride, Leicester's own annual LGBT+ festival, took place on Saturday 31 August 2019, celebrating equality, diversity and inclusion in our community. The event was attended by more 10,000 people, with more than 2,000 taking part in the parade through the city.

The University of Leicester is proud to support and attend Leicester Pride. In 2019 our vibrant stand within the Leicester LGBT Centre Tent was well-received, and our staff and students had lots of fun connecting with people and providing information about the University and our LGBT+ Staff Forum and Student Society. 

Since then we have continued our ongoing support for the LGBT+ community both within and outside the University. We hope to see you at Leicester Pride 2020!
