COVID 19 Update
Due to the current circumstances we cannot confirm when the event will be able to take place, but rest assured that this will be most stunning event ever. The Pride team is working hard during the confinement period, providing online support and events.

- BSL interpretation throughout the event and be equipped with a hearing loop system
- An improved sensory space in partnership with Perth Autism Support
Making Pride more sustainable
The second £500 raised would help us provide:
- Water refills
- Eco glitter and confetti
- Sustainable catering and advertisement
The LGBT+ community was always here in Perthshire, with little coverage or celebration. Entirely run by volunteers, Perthshire Pride started in 2018 as a team of four, which grew along the way to become an extended family of talented and resourceful people.
Perthshire Pride has run two successful Pride events. Last year saw the first Pride Parade in Perth, led by LGBT+ right activist Sir Ian McKellan.
This year we are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the repeal of Section 28 in Scotland, and LGBT+ awareness is finally officially part of the school curriculum. However, there is still much to be achieved.
Our main stage will be named after Ross Scott, who dedicated the last months of his life to raise HIV awareness within our community.
