There has always been a strong link between the furry fandom and the LGBT community so we are proud to announce that there will be an official Leeds Furs presence for the very first time at the city’s Pride event later this year.
Taking place on Sunday 5 August, Leeds Pride is one of the biggest LGBT events in the country and is now in its 12th year. It is a colourful celebration of diversity and we will be adding to that colour, having secured 30 slots in the parade. This will wind its way through the city from Millennium Square to Lower Briggate, where there will be six hours of entertainment, all for free and amidst a carnival atmosphere.
We are therefore looking for a cross-section of the local furry community – both suiters and non-suiters alike – to join us for one of the biggest parties of the year. The parade begins at 2pm so we would need to assemble beforehand, while afterwards we can enjoy the festivities in an impromptu furmeet.
If you would like to get involved, please contact us via email, drop us a message on our social media channels or speak to one of the staff members at a forthcoming meet. It would be great if you could help us make this the furriest Leeds Pride yet!Back to all News and Reports
