Reading Pride is run by unpaid volunteers, and we need your help to make Pride happen! Volunteering with us can be a rewarding, exciting and important way to support the LGBT+ community. Help make Reading Pride an event for the community and get those warm fuzzy feelings knowing you made it happen.

We’ve worked really hard to keep our Pride a free event for everyone to attend (not just those who can afford it). This means we rely on people to donate, and we need more people collecting those donations for us as well as other tasks like building staging, stewarding the parade or cleaning up the site so that we leave it as we found it!
