Let’s celebrate Southampton Pride
As a Union, we are proud to have such a diverse student population and we are here to welcome, celebrate and support you all. And what better way to do it, then at Sunday’s Southampton Pride, home to the city’s biggest LGBT+ party!
We’ll have a Union presence at Pride, so keep an eye out on our social media for the lowdown on the festivities. But if you are around on campus, why not join the march?!
Celebrations will commence on West Marlands Road (outside the Stage Door) from 11:00 on Sunday, with live music from midday. The party is set to continue through the evening at the official after party at The Edge & Box Bar.
The Community Parade will leave the Stage Door at 15:00, heading around Guildhall Square and down Above Bar Street to the Bargate.
We’ve also got our very own LGBT+ society here at the Union. You can find out more about how to get involved at our Bunfight: Student Groups Fayre on Wednesday 28 September during Freshers’.
The University will be flying the flag for gay rights (literally) on Highfield campus, so if you spot it, send me a picture via my Twitter @SotonVPEngage and I’ll retweet you!
Happy Pride everybody!
