Oban Pride is a Charitable Organisation completely led by volunteers from the community of Oban and surroundings areas, which was established as a registered charity in 2019. The purpose of Oban Pride is to promote Equality and Diversity throughout Oban and surrounding areas, through providing safe spaces for the LGBTQ+ community and its allies to come together to celebrate & promote equal rights throughout Scotland and across the world, while reflecting on our history. As well as reflecting on the past and celebrating, Oban Pride will also be highlighting the ongoing fight against stigma and inequality. Oban Pride creates opportunities for emotional growth, inclusion and freedom of expression for LGBTQ+ people. By providing Pride events and other LGBTQ+ inclusive events in Oban and surrounding areas, Oban Pride will both raise the profile and increase awareness of LGBTQ+ issues. Since being founded in 2019 the organisation has grown and we are delighted to be able to organise and run not only an annual Pride festival, but other activities as well for the whole community of Oban as well as the LGBTQ+ community in Oban and surrounding areas.
