We’ve Glasgow’s Reba Martel, Britain’s Got Talent’s, Edward Reid, the superb Spice World, N-trances Kelly LLorrena and much more kicking off from 11:30. Alongside the entertainment we’ve lined up a range of guest speakers across the day, a funfair, outdoor Pride bar, Drag bandstand, kids zone, market on Quarry Street and much more’. Event Organiser, Malcolm Thomas-Harley.

‘Pride is a celebration but also an important movement. Visibility, voice and a platform for our community are key goals of this first Pride in the region. A march isn’t part of this 1st year’s plans, instead we’ve designed the event to provide a large area to fill, so we’re going to need your support by coming along and helping us fill the streets with love joy and Pride on 29th July in Hamilton.

We would like to thank EventScotland and The National Lottery community fund for their support.’ Malcolm Thomas-Harley.
