No matter who you are or how you identify yourself, you should be proud to be who you want to be.

This year, Reading Pride is launching #prideinyou to encourage you to be stand up and love the life you lead. We want to encourage everyone to be proud of who they are and not feel ashamed of their identity. Reading Pride welcomes everyone to their free annual event we want to spread this message as we believe in equality for all. No matter what gender, orientation or race you identify as we are all entitled to feel proud of who we are.
