Barnsley Pride 2019

Our first time attending Barnsley Pride, a day to show your colours to the world!

Gay Pride is well represented in Barnsley as the Gay Pride parade organised and celebrated on Sunday 14th July 2019 clearly showed.

The event closed Wellington Street for the day and a constant stream of visitors came to see what it was about after the parade itself. A sound stage saw a variety of groups and artists entertain the crowd throughout the day and a large number of community groups and charities who’s work was mainly with young people, set of interesting stalls and information points.

The co-operation of the police and the local authorities shows the social and political importance of the LGBTQ+ minority in the town.
