Reading Pride is a registered charity run entirely by volunteers. As well as supporting the Thames Valley’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Asexual (LGBTA) communities throughout the year, we also organise Reading’s annual LGBTA Pride event – a day-long celebration of integration, equality and diversity that begins with a colourful parade procession through the town centre and culminates in a full afternoon of festival fun and live entertainment in King’s Meadow Park.
The Reading Pride festival has been free to attend since the first festival back in 2004 – and we intend to keep it that way. We finance the work that we do year round and cover the costs of hosting our annual outdoor festival through sponsorship, fundraising and donations, and we are very grateful to all the local businesses, venues, organisations and individuals who work with us and support us. If you would like to be actively involved in making Reading Pride 2014 a success, whether as an individual with some time to spare or as a business interested in providing corporate support, please get in touch by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org
