Congratulations

Coventry Pride would like to congratulate the Coventry City of Culture 2021 Trust on winning the title of UK City of Culture for the people of Coventry.

Coventry Pride hope this status will improve the diversity of our already vibrant city, which in turn can be used to allow Coventry to be proactive in challenging discrimination in all its many forms may that be that sexism, racism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia or just plain hatred. Doing this will bring all communities closer together which we hope will allow Coventry to become a beacon for diversity. 2021 seems a while away but we along with many fellow other Coventrians will continue working hard promote our many cultural attributes whilst keeping to the true spirit of the city, which is of acceptance and tolerance.

This is an exciting new chapter in Coventry’s history and Coventry Pride will continue to showcase equality, diversity and acceptance in the heart of our vibrant city in the run up to and during 2021. This is OUR time to shine.

Paul Desson-Baxter, Chair Coventry Pride, added “The entire team at Coventry Pride are still buzzing from this fantastic news, the Coventry 2021 team are fabulous, we have been happy to work with them, they have helped with various bits of content for Coventry Pride, and we are looking forward to working with them once again this year and starting to plan an awesome Coventry Pride in 2021.”
