Pride month is about acceptance, equality and celebrating the work of LGBTQI+ people. It is also about increasing education of LGBTQI+ history and raising awareness of issues affecting the wider community. We know that it’s not simply a time of celebration, it’s also a chance for people to find the support they need in a helpful and inclusive environment.
Bracknell Forest Pride is taking place on Saturday 10 June from midday to 7pm in Bracknell town centre.
Visitors will have a chance to visit the tent and speak to a number of partners there to help anyone who needs it. You might use the area to chill out, take a selfie, or speak to a number of organisations.
