Pride Cymru 2018

Pride Cymru is the biggest event promoting minority groups rights and celebrating differences in Wales. In 2017 as many as 10 000 people joined the parade in Cardiff and 40 000 enjoyed the numerous activities over the course of the Big Weekend. As an institution we were very happy to be one of the main sponsors and have the opportunity to participate in this explosion of joy.

The organisers do their best to make the event accessible to all members of the society by reducing ticket prices and by having wide range of groups represented. Thanks to the excellent security cooperation with the police there is no trouble and no fights on site which makes for a family-friendly event.

After last year’s success Aberystwyth University continues to support Pride Cymru. Aberystwyth University will be at Pride again this year on the weekend of 24-26 August, we are going back to Cardiff to share our experiences with others who are as committed to promoting equality and diversity as we are. To achieve that we will have a stand at the event so we are hoping that nobody will miss the opportunity to meet us and vice versa.
