With Pride month just getting underway, Coventry Pride is set to return this weekend 8 – 9 June.
The start of June marks National Pride month, which means Coventry Pride is right around the corner. This weekend, in fact. We’ve rounded up all that’s going on across the city on 8 – 9 June.
The theme for Coventry Pride this year is #SuperHeroesofPride, encouraging everyone to celebrate the superhero within them and diversity in all its forms, by coming together as one and sharing the wonderful city we all live in without fear of discrimination.
Regardless of sexual orientation, people from all corners of the city are invited to come along and share in the event.
Keep in mind, Coventry Pride is a free event and no tickets are required.
