About us 

Pride in London is run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about equality and diversity.

We are a not-for- profit organisation, and any surplus funds we raise are used to support the

LGBT+ community and improve the event.

Together, we run the UK’s biggest, most diverse pride, and our job is to make sure we provide a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, questioning, intersex, non-binary, asexual, polysexual, genderqueer and gender variant people) to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow them to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing.

From Pride’s Got Talent, which helps to showcase the wonderful creativity across our community, to our annual Parade through the heart of the West End and the amazing two-week, citywide Festival that proceeds Pride weekend, everything we do is designed to give LGBT+ people a platform to be visible and speak loudly to the rest of the city about what we have achieved, how far we have come and what is still needed. 

Pride in London includes people of every race and faith, whether disabled or able-bodied, and all sexualities and genders including lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, queer, questioning, intersex, trans*, genderqueer, gender variant or non-binary as well as straight and cis allies.

Around 150 people volunteer year-round to help us deliver what has become a world-class

Pride. We are already a pretty diverse bunch, but we are looking to add to our diversity and are especially keen to receive applications from the BAME, Trans, Bi, Non-binary and Queer communities. Gender equality is always a key consideration for us.

Our Culture

Our volunteers are driven and passionate about what they do. Putting on one of London's largest one-day events requires dedication and perseverance. 

Although a lot of our work is completed remotely, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet with your team and others throughout the year to not only plan what's ahead but to socialise too. 

We're looking for enthusiastic people to join the organisation so we can provide a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community.
