Join bisexuals, partners, friends and allies marching under the pink, purple and blue bi flag at LGBT Pride festivals this summer!
Dates we know about already are listed below. If you’re organising a stall or parade entry please let us know.
For some of these – marked on the list with an asterix (*) there’s a local bi group associated with them, though we don’t always know about a bi parade entry, stall or suchlike.
But at those Prides at least, even if you miss the Pride march itself there’s a local bi social and / or support meetups the rest of the year round.

Events marked with a * mean there is a local bi group in the area who are likely to be present whether with a stall, meetup, or banner waving group on the parade.
