Decision details

Pride 2021

Decision Maker: Tourism, Equalities, Communities & Culture Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


RESOLVED: That committee:


1.    Agreed in principle to Pride CIC running the event for a further year in 2021. (Subject to consideration of the financial implications at committee in June).


2.    Noted that a report would be presented to committee on June 2020 covering proposals for the operation and development of Pride from 2021.


3.    Note that the above June report set out the estimated costs to the Council of supporting the event in 2021, and in recognition of the significant financial losses likely to affect all council community events and community and voluntary services following the Covid 19 crisis that such a report would also:


(i)   Make clear the council’s continued commitment to the LGBTQIA+ community and the annual Pride event, with acknowledgement given to the work of Pride CIC, costs absorbed by both the council and event organisers

(ii)  Detail the significant revenue allocated to the Rainbow Fund, and which was subsequently given to smaller LGBT+ organisations and HIV projects across the city

(iii)  Explore how the Council could continue to support Pride while recovering any necessary costs, to ensure the event could continue in challenging times


4.    Continue to explore ways in which diversity and inclusion could still be celebrated through positive communications, in collaboration with LGBTQIA+ organisations in the city in light of the cancellation of Pride 2020.
