Cumbria is a county located in the North West of England. The region holds a pride event, known as the Cumbria Pride, which celebrates the LGBTQ+ community and promotes equality, diversity, and inclusion.
Cumbria Pride typically takes place in the city of Carlisle, the county's largest settlement. The event usually features a parade, live music and entertainment, food and drink vendors, stalls and information stands from various organizations, and a range of other activities.
Overall, Cumbria Pride is a vibrant and inclusive celebration that aims to bring together people from all backgrounds and walks of life to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and promote equality and acceptance.
Cumbria Pride is a volunteer-led community organisation established in 2009 that seeks to ensure that the LGBT+ community of Cumbria and its supporters are recognised, celebrated and supported through an annual Pride event. Our team came together to bring ‘Pride’ to Cumbria, to show that this is not just something for big cities but also for rural areas and the small towns! It has always been our aim to keep this event completely free of charge. As a committee we feel this is important for our community so that the positive messages of inclusion can reach as many people as possible.
