Taunton Pride is crucial for members of the queer community to see that they genuinely do have a community
Pride Festivals allow people to express themselves and that's humanity at its best.

Pride is a call to the community "we are here, we are proud, you are welcome".
Pride is important to Taunton to bring people together from all communities and all celebrate the love and respect we have for each other and to promote diversity and equality.
