Parade

Again this year the deaf, blind, disabled, elderly and those with mobility issues will have a Safe Space at the head of the Parade.

The LGBT CSF and Pride is aware that many deaf, disabled and older Pride goers will need to march in a space where access stewards are available to prevent them from being crowded out or bumped into, where they can feel confident and therefore proud. We will be working with Pride to enable this ‘safe space’ to be situated at the front of the march. This will also help to ensure that the whole parade moves at a pace that is suitable for everyone.

 

We welcome all deaf, blind, older and disabled people to join us in this space.

 

Further arrangements

 

  • There will be golf buggies following the safe space which will allow registered participants who are unable to walk the full distance to participate in the parade.
