UK Black Pride 2021

UK Black Pride (UKBP) is a Black gay pride event that has taken place since 2005 in London. It is Europe’s largest celebration for African, Asian, Middle Eastern, Latin American and Caribbean heritage lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people attracting nearly 8,000 annually.

It was founded by Phyllis Akua Opoku-Gyimah, also known as Lady Phyll.  She is also a British political activist and executive director of Kaleidoscope Trust.

UK Black Pride announced the theme to this year’s festivities as “Love and Rage”, to acknowledge the difficult 12 months for so many people within racialised and ethnic minority communities.

UK Black Pride will once again be a digital event for 2021 (due to the COVID pandemic) and will include an exciting programme that will cater to a broad range of communities the organisation represents.  We encourage you to monitor the events and programmes listed here.
