Information about Pride Edinburgh on Saturday 24th June

If you would like to celebrate but find the March overwhelming, there will be quieter alternatives! More information below.

The March

Meet at Scottish Parliament at 12:30pm and the March will set off at 1pm. More info: The March – Pride Edinburgh

The March will be busy and loud and it might be hard to stay together with your friends. Last year many young people found it overwhelming. Make sure to bring ear plugs and water!

Check the information about the Youth Space for a quieter and less intense alternative.
