Sunday 7th July

HAGGERSTON PARK

UK Black Pride returns on Sunday 7 July, 2019 and to mark UK Black Pride’s continued growth, the celebration moves to a larger location: Haggerston Park in east London. The team has been working hard to find a new home for UK Black Pride and have taken into consideration accessibility, public transport links, diversity of the local area and the borough’s historical significance.

Phyll Opoku-Gyimah, co-founder and executive director of UK Black Pride:

“We’ve had a really good run in Lambeth and are grateful to the local council, public services like police, TfL, ambulance services and of course the residents who helped make our annual celebrations so successful. We’re excited to work with Hackney Council, the Mayor of Hackney and local residents and businesses to bring UK Black Pride to east London this summer. We are so energised by Hackney’s diversity, historical significance as a welcoming place for people from such a broad range of diasporas and the wonderfully enthusiastic response from local government.”

Joining MNEK on the day is Aaron Carty’s Beyoncé Experience, Toya Delazey and N'Chyz.

#OutOnLinkedIn with #UKBlackPride

Understanding the particular intersection of race and sexuality is important to foster a deeper understanding of the specific life experiences of LGBTQ+ people of colour. Throughout the month of June, UK Black Pride and LinkedIn are collaborating to provide a platform to examine what it means to be an LGBTQ+ person of colour at work. And so for those who feel safe sharing their stories, we’d love to hear from you.
