The Pride:MK organising committee are very excited to formally announce the date Pride:MK 2019 – so get your pens out and mark your calendars!

Campbell Park, Milton Keynes

This is planned to be a family friendly, accessible, diverse and free to attend event for the LGBTQ+ community in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas.

Chair of the committee, Helen Pritchard said, “We are overwhelmed by the support we’ve received from the community so far!  We’ve had people offering to volunteer as well as many agencies and businesses who are keen to be involved.  MK is so ready for this event, and we’re looking forward to sharing more information with everyone in the New Year.”

The Pride:MK committee consists of three different community organisers & services providers; the social Meetup group “LGBT:MK”, the Facebook social group “Milton Keynes LGBT Breakfast”, and the MK based LGBTQ+ charity Q:alliance.

The committee is made up of the Chair Helen Pritchard (Q:alliance), the Secretary David Ferris (Breakfast Group), the Treasurer Wayne Reid (Q:alliance), the Venue Manager Peter Reynolds (LGBT:MK), the Corporate Engagement Lead TJ Richards (Q:alliance) and the Music Manager Charlene Carr (Q:alliance).  The team are also supported by Dylan Bettles-Hill (Q:alliance) for IT and social media.

The committee are busy reaching out to other community organisations to make certain we continue our mission to ensure that Pride:MK 2019 is “for the community and by the community”.
