Norwich Pride is organised by a group of volunteers from the LGBT+ community and allies.
Our vision is to turn Norwich into a rainbow. This is because the rainbow flag is the international symbol of the LGBT+ community. It is also a symbol of PEACE. When LGBT+ people see the rainbow flag, they know they are entering a safe place.
Our mission is to live in a city where everyone can feel safe and proud to be themselves. We believe there is no point in one set of human beings getting their equal rights if another doesn’t. We also recognise that LGBT+ people are not defined solely by their sexual orientation and gender identity. We are not just LGBT+. Many of us are also people of colour, disabled, religious, young, old, parents, grandparents, refugees…. For this reason we believe the city has to be safe for everyone, if it is to be safe for anyone.
This year we are celebrating 50 years of LGBT+ liberation since the Stonewall Riots. We are now in the busiest time of planning. We have worked with partner organisations to organise a month of activities across the city, starting with Pride Week in schools.
