Who is Shetland Pride?
Shetland Pride is a new organisation dedicated to promoting LGBTQ+ Equality, Diversity & Inclusivity.
Shetland Pride is a Registered Charity (SCIO) – SC051271
Our Pride Festival will take place on Saturday, 2nd of July 2022, and will not only be Shetland's first local and national Pride Festival - it will also be the MOST northerly Pride Festival in the UK! Shetland is closer to the Arctic circle than it is to London and is on the same latitude as the southern tip of Greenland!
The Aims of Shetland Pride
- To proudly promote Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender culture through public celebration of our heritage and engaging in education and cultural activities that enrich the community, whilst raising awareness of the issues LGBTQ+ people face building mutual respect and working to end discrimination.
- Cultivating a sentiment in favour of equality and diversity to create a safe environment where LGBTQ+ people can promote and explore their culture and work in the interests of the public benefit to remove any social exclusion.
- Pride is inclusive of people from every race and faith, whether disabled or able-bodied, all sexualities and genders.
