Jamie Wake, charity CEO, said that “..For the LGBT+ community, Pride is a celebration of identity, diversity, and inclusion and for a significant number of the LGBT+ community, an individual’s first pride literally can change their life: it’s empowering and exhilarating to discover that there are people just like you..”

 

The event was officially announced in July 2023 following a motion presented by Cllr Giles Davies to Torfaen Council to acknowledge the LGBT+ community in the borough of Torfaen as well as to acknowledge support by the local authority for a pride event in Torfaen. The motion was passed unanimously.

 

The event will consist of main stage, market stalls, community stalls, food and drink stalls and a fun fair. A parade route is currently being considered.

 

The event kicks off pride month in Wales which runs throughout June and for Club F.O.D its also a double celebration as the weekend also marks their 5th birthday.

 

Jamie Wake, Club F.O.D CEO, added “It’s not just Torfaen Pride – it’s Torfaen’s Pride”. Highlighting that this has been adopted as the events tagline.
