Our mission and values

Eastleigh Pride wants to transform our town into a place where LGBTQIA+ people can always feel proud, valued, and accepted for who they are.

We are a non-profit organisation and every year we run an inclusive Eastleigh Pride to raise awareness about LGBTQIA+ people and their issues within our community.

Our logo adopts the Spitfire; a WW2 fighter plane that was manufactured in Eastleigh and used to defend British values of social liberalism from being destroyed by far-right fascism.

Years of heritage

Eastleigh Pride CIC was founded by Dannon Robinson in 2017 after he suffered a homophobic attack in his Eastleigh workplace of the time.

Dannon hopes Eastleigh Pride events can help to stamp out homophobia in Eastleigh, and envisions these events can serve as a platform to create awareness about wider LGBTQIA+ issues, including the ongoing national conversation about trans rights.

The Local Heroes Award was awarded to Dannon by the Mayor of Eastleigh in 2023 to recognise his tireless efforts with organising Eastleigh Pride.

What to expect at Eastleigh Pride 2024

11.45am - 12.00pm
Pride March

Pride isn't just a celebration; it's also an ongoing protest by the LGBTQIA+ community to demand we are treated fairly across Eastleigh, as well as the rest of the UK.

Our march begins at Leigh Road Recreation Ground and we'll make our way in a loop around the High Street.

Colourful clothes, signs, flags and banners are all encouraged - we just ask you keep it appropriate so we don't alienate any of the younger supporters who join us on our march!

12.00pm - 6.00pm
Activities for all the family

During the day we offer a wide range of family friendly activities so that people of all ages can have a chance to enjoy Pride.

Past Eastleigh Pride events have included:

  • Live music
  • Rock climbing
  • Pantomime
  • Fun fair rides
  • Police and fire vehicles for children to explore

6.00pm - 9.30pm
Open bars and live music

The evening activites are more focused on adults with live music and alcohol.

A bar will be available which sells beers, ciders, wines, spirits and soft drinks.

We want everyone to be able to have a great time so we ask you drink responsibly. We're also obligated by our site license to enforce a zero-tolerance drugs policy.
