Trans Pride returns to Southampton this month

Trans Pride Southampton returns for its third annual event this year. This year’s event will take place on the 29th June 2024.

This event will begin with a protest march through Southampton, setting out from Oxford Street and finishing at the event’s venue, Edmund Kell Unitarian Church. The march will start from 12pm and last approximately one hour. Prior to the march, The London Hotel  on Oxford Street will be open from 11am for attendees to meet, have a drink and use the facilities.

The event at Edmund Kell Unitarian Church will have both indoor and outdoor spaces, with live music, poetry and a group of community stalls for people to enjoy. Trans Pride will conclude with a disco into the night of the 29th June.

In this way, Trans Pride Southampton combines the need and exercise of protest for trans rights, with the much needed space for trans people to tackle isolation within the community, make friends and celebrate Southampton’s artistic and creative culture through the live music and poetry on throughout the afternoon.

The live music is brought to the event with thanks to local transgender artists Pip Summers and Alyx Palmer-New. This is a mix of artists who have performed at local Pride events and some newer names. The poetry will be from a number of local artists as well. The Art House will be hosting their Moving Voices poetry event to provide this feature to attendees, which celebrates diversity, experimentation, and first time performers.

To take part in Trans Pride Southampton,  either go to The London Hotel from 11am until the march departs Oxford Street at 12pm and arrives at Edmund Kell Unitarian Church at approximately 1pm, or arrive from 1pm at Edmund Kell Unitarian Church, after the march.

Trans Pride Southampton is a not-for-profit organisation with the aims to improve the lives of trans people in Southampton, through their name sake pride event and several smaller events through the year such as LGBTQIA+ Beach Meets.
