Margate Pride CIC is an artist-led, not for profit community interest company dedicated to promoting the diversity of love in our town.

It is predominantly organised by people who identify as LGBTQIA; however, it is for everyone. We believe in building a pride event that is truly representative of the people of Margate and is an alternative to other mainstream prides.

We want to build a pride of which we can all be proud.

We are committed to developing sustainable links with schools, colleges, residential homes and community groups throughout the town. For us, pride is not just celebrating one day, it as about building and developing authentic relationships and networks that benefit all of us – all of the time.

If you have an idea for a project, be it a float, a talk, a scheme, an exhibition or an event, get in touch and we will be happy to schedule a meeting to talk about how we can help elevate your idea.

You are your pride. If you have an idea, it’s up to you to make it happen and we will help you in any way we can.

In order to make the event happen, we have a number of guidelines and deadlines to which we have to adhere. If you would like to be involved in any way, we are always happy to help and advise you.

Our Manifesto : Margate Pride is a culture rich contemporary pride. A celebration of all of Thanet’s queerness and LGBTQI life. Gay, straight, everything, nothing and all the in-between – if you don’t feel represented, get in touch.

Margate Pride CIC is a not for profit community interest company led by LGBTQIA artists to celebrate the diversity of love in Margate.

We are currently developing relationships with schools, residential homes, community groups, local businesses and individuals throughout the town to make it an important part of the fabric of the town.

Margate Pride is not just a parade for the day. It’s an expression of the whole community. We really want you to make it your own.

Margate Pride has an authentic homemade feel that represents the quirky, creative DIY aesthetic of our town. Expect homemade bunting and upcycled costumes rather than corporate branding.

Tell your friends, everyone is welcome!
