Like London, Brighton & Manchester Pride organisations, our ultimate goal is to enhance service provision for the LGBTQI+ community of Medway. This includes improving access to health services, improving welfare, and mental health & welbeing for LGBTQI+ people. We can achive this by supporting organisations who are porviding services for the LGBTQI+ community. Developing new support services and helping service providers understand the needs of the LGBTQI+ community in Medway.

We can only achive these goals by increasing public donations to Medway Pride. Our events are an important part of that fundraising and to that end we wish to deliver a fantastic Medway Pride Event and with your help we can.

What can Medway Pride 2021 do for you?

Medway Pride 2021 will be the first pride parade from Chatham High Street through Rochester High Street, with a free festival in Rochester Castle Gardens. We estimate there could be 3500+ attend Medway Pride 2020, which could develop over following years, like Canterbury Pride which saw over 15,000 attending in 2018 & 2019. 

Wakefield Pride is an example of how Medway Pride could have a positive impact on the local economy. Wakefield’s population is similar to Medway and over 3,100 people attended the 2018 Wakefield LGBT Pride main event with many more filling out LGBT Pride Partner venues, an estimated £354,440.29 was generated back to the Wakefield economy by the Wakefield LGBT Pride 2018 event.

By supporting Medway Pride, you are not only connecting yourself to one of the most diverse free events in Medway, you are also connecting yourself to our network of LGBT industry professionals and business owners alike.

Medway Pride partners can provide your organisation with training and advice on LGBTQI+ diversity especially awareness training for your employees as part of a main sponsor or supporter sponsorship package.
