Pride month: 75+ places where you can celebrate for free

June is Pride month, a time to celebrate our vibrant LGBTQIA+ community and the decades of hard work towards acceptance and equality for us all.

Most towns and cities across the British Isles will be marking the occasion with an official Pride parade for members of the community and allies.

We’ve rounded up more than 75 free parades taking place from June to September, so no-one has to miss out if money is tight right now.

Although there’s no entry fee for any of the events listed, you may need a free ticket and there may be certain paid-for activities.
