Proudly supporting the LGBTQ+ community all year round!
We are an LGBTQ+ charity made up of LGBTQ+ individuals & allies providing the LGBTQ+ community, their family members, friends, and allies with support services, outreach stalls, events, and much more.

You can find out about our upcoming events below, and for all of our events, check out the events page.
We operate all year round, to ensure the ongoing well-being and safety of all in our community.
We also do this to raise awareness and educate others outside the community on the issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community to try and create cohesion amongst everyone.
People’s Pride Southampton started out as a dream!
A small collective of LGBTQ+ people and their allies trying to change things for the better, trying to create a community with true cohesion!
Not only amongst the LGBTQ+ community but through the community as a whole!.
Not only do we offer a 100% free community festival every year, but we also run a weekly outreach program in Southampton city centre offering valuable support and advice to members of the LGBTQ+ community… and of course to anyone who asks for it regardless of sexuality!
We are here to buck the trend of Pride organisations who seem to have a primary focus on money, controlling diversity, corporate sponsorships, and all that jazz!
We are accessible to all, we will never take on corporate sponsors outside of working with local community businesses that we can support in exchange, we are different! We create events where every single person can be involved!
We believe that we are part of a bigger community… of course, we can have our own community, if there’s a knitting circle then why not a group for LGBTQ+ people?
However, unlike most LGBTQ+ charities we support our local community; if you are bi, straight, poly, [insert your identification here] and we can help you then we will!
We actively work with and integrate disabled, neurodiverse, BAME community members and Trans community members because all too often these sectors of society are not thought about, be it in the mainstream or the LGBT+ community.
We also offer mental health services, free of charge, to increase people’s mental health, wellbeing, and ongoing mental stability.
The way we see things is that through education, support, and much more we can slowly create a community where LGBTQ+ people and non LGBTQ+ people can live side by side in harmony fully integrate into society. We are #proud to be different!
