This year – 2022 – Margate Pride is excited to be hosting the parade once more along the Margate seafront on Saturday 13th August.

We are focusing on making space for our community, community groups and charities. As stated in our mission, ‘Margate Pride seeks to advance equity and justice for LGBTQIA+ people in all communities across Margate and beyond‘. We represent many intersections and want to give a platform to them by inviting community groups and charities to the parade.

No floats

As part of our environmental commitment, we are organising a no-float parade*. Vehicles are not needed to show our commitment to LGBTQIA+ rights and share the love!

We also want to connect more to Pride’s roots as a protest march. While there are still inequalities in the world for LGBTQIA+ people, this is an opportunity to show solidarity.

*This does not apply to those with mobility issues of course.

How businesses can get involved

As we are only inviting community groups to walk in the parade there will be no corporate or local business presence, but we value your support and there are many ways to support Margate Pride. From donating to Margate Pride running a promo to support Pride, to volunteering staff for the many volunteer roles needed to make Pride the safe and celebratory festival it is.

We also ask businesses to sign up to our Code of Conduct and Values to demonstrate their commitment to the LGBTQIA+ community, making Margate and beyond a safer and better place.

If you are interested in getting involved, please email:
