Quiet Pride 2024!

What is Quiet Pride?

Quiet Pride is a space to celebrate being LGBTQ+. It aims to be as accessible and inclusive as we can. Disabled LGBTQ+ people need a space to celebrate their wonderful, intersectional identities.

Quiet Pride 2024

There are two sessions, 10.00am – 1.30pm and 2.00 – 5.30pm. Please only register for one session. We are hoping this will allow more people to experience the joy of Quiet Pride.

The venue is wheelchair accessible, has nearby accessible toilets and accessible parking. BSL interpreters will be booked for the duration of the day. Please visit the Quiet Pride website for more detailed information about accessibility.

Join us with your ear defenders, your mobility aids, or just bring your wonderful self! We want you to feel safe to be your most comfortable self, whatever that means to you. Wherever you want to sit or stand, there will be no pressure. Bring a book if you want, whatever makes you feel at home.

We’ll have a quiet room where you can just sit and be, and an open art and craft space to work on a communal art project or individual art. All of these spaces will be for people to pop in and out of, with no need to book.

Alongside this, there will be scheduled activities – you don’t have to take part, it’s entirely up to you, and the more informal things will be happening alongside them.

Scheduled activities include seated yoga, gentle dance, a dungeons and dragons space and more.

Why do we need Quiet Pride?


A lot of Pride events are fantastic but aren’t accessible in various different ways. For example, they may be really noisy, have flashing lights or not be wheelchair accessible. These are just some examples of how Pride events can exclude LGBTQ disabled people.


LGBT events other than Pride are often held in bars which are noisy, busy and often upstairs. This means disabled people can feel excluded from the LGBT community the rest of the year as well.


LGBTQ disabled people are more socially isolated than other LGBTQ people. Quiet Pride is one small way to help make everyone feel included.
