The first ever North Wales Pride will take place between the 5th and 7th October this year. The event is organised by Cymru Pride Wales, a small group of volunteers who aspire to make a difference for the LGBT community by bringing events of this kind to the area. North Wales Pride 2012 will be hosted at Hendre Hall, Bangor, flanked by the picturesque Snowdonia National Park and the stunning North Wales coastline.
The event aims to celebrate diversity and break down the barriers of discrimination by reaching out to as many members of the community as possible. Organisers say that the event has attracted UK wide interest and it is hoped that North Wales Pride 2012 will be the first of many to come.
Organisers have confirmed that Samantha Brookes, 2011 X Factor finalist, is one of their headlining acts. Local girl Sami, from Rhyl, shot to fame on the popular Saturday night entertainment show despite the controversial decision by judge Louis Walsh to send her home in favour of Goldie the lap dancer.
Another confirmed act is the resident DJ of Garlands in Liverpool, Dave Booth. The main event is also playing host to a number of local performers, artists and activities for all ages including Yoga, Salsa and Zumba taster sessions.
North Wales Pride has a limited number of trade stands available for organisations and businesses who wish to attend the event. If you have spare time on your hands and would like to volunteer at North Wales Pride, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
