Meet the team

 

UK Black Pride promotes unity and co-operation among all LGBTQ people of African, Asian, Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Latin American descent, as well as their friends, families and allies.

Our team is committed to producing an annual celebration of Black Pride, as well as organising a variety of activities throughout the year in and around the UK which also promote and advocate for the spiritual, emotional and intellectual health and well-being of all related communities. Our aim is to foster, present and celebrate Black LGBTQ culture through education, the arts, cultural events and advocacy.
