Highland Pride organisers have announced next year’s event will take place at Bught Park in Inverness on Sunday July 19.

The festival, formerly known as Proud Ness, will kick off the day after the Inverness Highland Games and will feature a march leaving from the city centre followed by an afternoon of speeches, music and performances.

The programme includes the debut of additional events and attractions as well as the return of the Ruff Ness Dog Show, Inverness Shinty Sixes and the Highland Pride Village and Craft Fair.

The Inverness Events and Festivals Working Group Chair, Councillor Graham Ross said: “The Inverness Highland Games weekend is one of the highlights of the summer here in Inverness and we are pleased to support the excellent work being undertaken by the Highland LGBT Forum as they lead a partnership of numerous charities and community groups to deliver an memorable event that we can all be proud of.”

Highland Pride Events Manager and Highland LGBT Forum Committee Member Jessica Taylor said: “We are absolutely delighted to have the support which will enable us to host our summer Pride event during Games weekend.

“Following the success of the inaugural event earlier this year, which attracted thousands of supporters from all over the Highlands and Islands, Moray and further afield and was one of the largest Pride events ever staged in Scotland, we are really looking forward to next July.

“Planning for the event is now well underway and we are very excited about delivering another enjoyable day which will enable everybody to come along and get involved and help us celebrate and support our local LGBT+ community with our very own unique blend of Highland pride and entertainment.”
