Welcome to Oxford Pride

Welcome from Zayna Ratty - Chair

And so the year 2021 begins and we leave behind a year where for the first time Oxford Pride was kinda cancelled.

In its place for 2020 we put on a virtual festival with a live streamed show, something Oxford Pride has never attempted before on such a scale. The virtual festival included events from the Oxfordshire Drag collective, Abingdon & Witney College, Drag Queen Story Hour UK with a social media reach for the event of over 20000 people. We featured videos from local prides and had the majority of committee dropping in to co-host alongside me which was amazing!

We are forever grateful to sponsors, supporters and allies for all the support, sharing, likes and donations to Oxford Pride and for the hard work of all to raise the visibility of our entire community during these times.

“What the community and the committee put together makes me extremely proud of what we achieved.”

As we look towards 2021, we are constantly in touch with all of the support services which facilitate us to put on a safe festival and provide an Oxford Pride 2021 everyone can be proud of.

If you would like to take advantage of advertising or supporting Oxford Pride to provide a well deserved free day for all then please do email me on chair@oxfordpride.uk.

Stay Safe and I hope to see you soon.

Latest from Oxford Pride

Published: Monday 26 April 2021

The Oxford Pride committee are excited to announce our plans to hold a Virtual Pride event on Saturday 5 June 2021. We had an excellent response to our virtual event for Oxford Pride 2020, with thousands of viewers on our 3 hour live stream, reaching those who may have attended an in-person event.

The theme this year is #InclusionMatters as we felt that given the events in both the wider world and within pride organisations it’s a reminder that the movement exists due to the actions of marginalised members of our community and how this is sometimes not honoured or remembered.

The Stonewall Home and Communities report in 2018 highlighted that:

  • Half of black, Asian and minority ethnic LGBT people (51 per cent) have experienced discrimination or poor treatment from others in their local LGBT community because of their ethnicity.
  • More than a third of trans people (36 per cent), one in eight LGBT disabled people whose activities are ‘limited a lot’ (13 per cent), and one in five LGBT people of non-Christian faith (21 per cent) say they’ve experienced discrimination from within the community because of different parts of their identities.
  • A third of bi people (32 per cent) say they cannot be open about their sexual orientation with anyone in their family.

The 2018 LGBT Health in Britain survey found that:

  • Forty-one per cent of non-binary people said they harmed themselves in the last year compared to 20 per cent of LGBT women and 12 per cent of GBT men.

These reports highlight that for many in the community, life has improved yet for those who are marginalised within a marginalised community they are still at risk of discrimination and exclusion.

Regard is an LGBT disability charity, and they have a wealth of information about discrimination and ableism within the community. Founded in 1989, Regard has four aims: to highlight disability issues within the LGBTQI+ communities; to highlight LGBTQI+ issues within the Disabled communities; to combat social isolation among LGBTQI+ Disabled people; and to campaign and work strategically on issues that particularly impact on LGBTQI+ Disabled people. You can find out more about their work here.
