UK Black Pride is Europe’s largest Pride celebration for LGBTQ!+ people of African, Asian, Caribbean, Latin American and S.W.A.N.A. decent.
Starting off as a small party in the park, it has metamorphosed into a diverse, welcoming festival of colour and joy! The last in-person event was a fabulous gathering at Haggerston Park where 10,000 people joined in the celebrations.
After two years of virtual events, UK Black Pride returns for an in-person protest and celebration on Sunday 14 August, 2022. This year the event takes place at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, London.
“Our vision for UK Black Pride has always been to meet and exceed the expectations of the communities we represent and fight for. Each year, we consider how – through programming, protest and politics – we can create space where our identities and our cultures can be expressed safely” – Phyll Opoku-Gyimah
