The festival brings together the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community in Preston. Throughout the year, it also gathers fundraisers and sponsors to promote its efforts.

Sponsors this year include UCLan, Lancashire Constabulary, Preston City Council and Lancashire County Council as well as smaller organisations including Disability Equality North West.

The event is also looking for volunteer Pride Makers to help in the running of the event. For more information, visit their website here, or contact info@prestonpride.com.
