This Sunday 28 August sees the return of Southampton Pride, the city’s biggest celebration of LGBT+ equality.

Celebrations will commence on West Marlands Road (outside the Stage Door) from 11:00 on Sunday, with live music from midday. The party is set to continue through the evening at the official after party at The Edge & Box Bar.

The Community Parade will leave the Stage Door at 15:00, heading around Guildhall Square and down Above Bar Street to the Bargate.

As a Union, we are proud to have such a diverse student population and we are here to welcome, celebrate and support you all. Keep an eye out for us at Pride, where we will be covering the festivities on our social media.

Don’t forget that we have our very own LGBT+ society here at the Union. You can find out more about how to get involved at our Bunfight: Student Groups Fayre on Wednesday 28 September.

The University will also be joining in with the event, with their LGBT Staff Network going along to the march. If you’re interested in going along, you can sign up via Eventbrite. Also, the Uni will be flying the rainbow flag for LGBT+  rights all week, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Find out more here.
