Mid Ulster Pride is NI's first Rural LGBTQ+ organisation. We were established in 2019 to promote the interests of LGBTQ+ resources in Mid Ulster. The cause was quickly picked by local LGBTQ+ people and their allies, and soon the core values of Mid Ulster Pride were immortalised in our motto: Belonging, Love, and Celebration. In 2020 the first Rural LGBTQ+ Pride was planned for June. Unfortunately, COVID-19 pushed plans foward until September of that year. In the wake of this, a socially distanced Mid Ulster Pride took to the streets. From then we have grown and evolved to best serve the rural LGBTQ+ community.
what do we do?
Mid Ulster Pride runs several different events throughout the year. We hold coffee mornings and social evenings in major towns of Mid Ulster. LGBTQ+ people, their families, friends, and supporters can come together in a safe and welcoming environment. We hold our Rural Pride Parade every summer. The Parade is a celebration of everything that makes LGBTQ+ rural communities unique. We exists to prove that the countryside is ready for a Queer Revolution.
