But in addition to these official events, the city is serving up a cornucopia of LGBT+ events and other activities. None of these events are part of the official Dundee Pride organisations, but pride doesn’t belong to anyone group. It belongs to all of us. We are really pleased to see that so many things are happening around the city. There is more than enough Pride to go around

Please support all the LGBT+ organisations and the many organisations that are visible allies of the LGBT+ community. Here is a listing of those activities we know about. If you spot anything missing or know of other actives, please let us know.
