Recently, the accelerator has been to the floor when it comes to fundraising!
We have distributed collection boxes to local businesses, sold wristbands like mad and our committee & supporters have been stars with raffle tickets!
Today Pride in Diversity supporters, and our friends, gathered at Harrogate’s cenotaph to support the LGBT men in Chechnya who are being held in concentration camp-style prisons. We also met to condemn the acts, and write to our Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, and ask him to pass on our condemnation to the Russian Federation Government.
Russian newspapers and human rights groups report that more than 100 gay men have been detained “in connection with their non-traditional sexual orientation, or suspicion of such” as part of a purge. Several people were also reportedly feared dead following violent raids.
In a chilling response, a Chechen government spokesperson denied that there are any gay people to detain, insisting that “you can’t detain and harass someone who doesn’t exist in the republic”. The Kremlin denied any knowledge of a purge.
But reports have since emerged that the men arrested are being kept in horrific concentration camp prisons, where violent abuse and torture is common.
Come and find out about Pride in Diversity. Learn more about marshalling, how to have a stall in Valley Gardens for the Party and book your spot in the Parade!
To make PiD safe and efficient we need around 20 marshals! This is where we need you…
The benefits of volunteering at PiD extend well beyond the great experience of undertaking your volunteer role. Some of the perks include:
An ability to work under pressure, an enthusiastic “can-do” attitude are essential for you to get the most out of this role.
Training: an hour steward training in early May
Time Commitments: 11.00am – 1pm or/and 1pm – 6pm on 20th May (plus an hour training session).

Our crowdfunding page is up and running. Please help make this event happen. Each pound given goes towards staging all our events. The organising team are all volunteers, and although people have been generous with their time there are costs we need to meet. Help make the first Harrogate Pride an amazing event.
