From its early days as a one day street party, Birmingham Gay and Lesbian Pride has grown into the countries biggest FREE Gay festival spanning over three days, and raising thousands of pounds for worthy gay and lesbian community groups in the West Midlands.

Carnival Parade

Launched on the evening of Saturday 29th May, a flamboyant and high profile Carnival Parade will wind its way through Birmingham City Centre down to the Gay Village in Hurst Street, watched by thousands of shoppers.

Birmingham Pride Carnival Parade has become a key part of the city's events calendar, and is now a fully integrated part of Birmingham Gay and Lesbian Pride.

In 2003 the parade became Birmingham's first city centre parade on a Saturday, bringing it a new prominence and adding a true Carnival spirit to the Pride event.

This year the parade has a new exciting route though the busiest part of the City Centre - beginning in Victoria Square, along New Street, High Street, Carrs Lane, Moor Street and Hurst Street.

On the parades arrival in the Gay Village the streets come alive with three days of free entertainment with;

  • Gay and lesbian stalls
  • Mini-arenas featuring live acts and DJs
  • Market stalls
  • More fun fair rides than ever before
  • Street entertainment
  • Women’s arena
  • Community Village Green

The event encapsulates a real party atmosphere, and not only hosts a number of live performers and DJ’s, but also provides a place for a family picnic on the increasingly popular community village green.

Over the weekend, the gay venues involved in this years pride will be presenting a varied range of entertainment, with appearances by Andy Scott Lee, Kim Mazelle, Big Brovaz, Rozalla, plus a great line up of DJ’s including Lady Bianca, Malcolm Duffy and Sarah G and popular local DJ’s Andy Farley, Chad Lewis and Corey.
