Pride Cymru is a volunteer-led charity that works to promote the elimination of discrimination be it on the grounds of sexual orientation, gender, race, religion or ability.
We are committed to campaigning for equality and acceptance of diversity within our communities. We recognise and celebrate the contributions made by LGBT+ people in society and we continue our work to create opportunities for LGBT+ people around Wales to connect and support each other. Pride Cymru is committed to promoting and raising awareness of the issues affecting the LGBT+ community as we want our society to be free from hate crime, discrimination and prejudice.
Despite some progress in legislation, the fight for equality and inclusion for the LGBT+ community is far from over. Parts of our community are still suffering. For example, transgender people still struggle to access healthcare in fear of stigma; there is an increase in hate crime targeting those most vulnerable in our community; mental health problems are on the rise and gender-inclusive language continues to be overlooked across the workplace and in society.
As well as our annual Pride event which looks to connect the LGBT+ community physically, we work throughout the year to increase engagement between different parts of the LGBT+ community so that we can support each other and grow as a united and empowered part of society. We are proud to be able to work with organisations such as Glitter Cymru, Bi Cymru, Victim Support and the Deaf Hub Wales in a way that can benefit all parts of the LGBT+ community.
