Swansea Pride is 'a labour of love'

Organising Swansea Pride each year is a labour of love. Along with the rest of the directors we volunteer our time each year to ensure Swansea has a gay pride event of which it can be truly proud. We are determined that our fifth Swansea Pride event will be the best yet.

The fifth Swansea Pride gets underway today. Thousands are expected to descend of the city for the LGBT pride event for South West Wales.

Swansea Pride will feature an "Equali-tea Party" where a broad range of elected officials will meet, over afternoon tea in the VIP Enclosure, to discuss LGBT equality and reflect on the progress made this year.
