Love is Love - celebrate with us

We’re so excited to be celebrating Pride in Birmingham again (from 27-28 May), and we’d love to see you there!

Birmingham Pride brings together tens of thousands of members of the LGBTQ+ community, friends, allies, and supporters in celebration of LGBTQ+ equality.

On Saturday (27 May), our UoB community will be once again marching at the annual Birmingham Pride Parade. Can you make 2023 our best turnout?

How can you get involved?

After record numbers of over 500 members of the UoB community turned out in 2022, we're calling on all students to take part in one of the UoB parade teams at this year’s pride parade.

As a participant, you'll have access to an indoor rest area with bottled water and washroom facilities before the start of the parade. Participants are requested to arrive at the UoB check-in desks at the Exchange in Centenary Square, Birmingham (opposite the Library of Birmingham) between 10:30am to 11:00am on the day.

Please note, there are several departments and colleges with their own parade team. Everyone will be meeting and walking together, so if you're not sure which team to register with then the link for the UoB and Guild of Students joint team is open to all students.

Events like Pride and LGBTQ+ History Month provide a great opportunity to celebrate inclusivity and to connect with others. Read student Arianna's blog on the importance of finding a community.
