Birmingham Pride 2017: March with us & help stop religious and cultural homophobia

Birmingham Pride - Naz and Matt Foundation 2016

March with us on Saturday 27th May as we march through Birmingham to help end religious and cultural homophobia, and to support the campaign to criminalise gay cure therapy.

As we walk we will be remembering my darling Naz, and the countless other members of our community who are no longer here because of the beliefs of their families.

Help us raise visibility through the streets of Birmingham and let the city know that we will not stand back and let religion and culture take the lives of the beautiful people people who are born as they are, to be themselves.

Theme: Royal India and Fabulous Butterflies

Our theme this year is ‘Royal India and Fabulous Butterflies‘. Please dress in this theme if you can. But you may wear whatever you like, just make sure it’s comfortable for you to walk the length of the march. Most importantly be yourself, be bold, and be fabulous!

Update: Highlights from Birmingham Pride 2017

Matt set up the Naz and Matt Foundation in memory of his soulmate and fiancé, Naz, who passed away two days after being confronted about his sexuality by his religious parents. It was the first time that they knew their son was gay, in a relationship with Matt for 13 years and that they were planning to get married.
