Aberystwyth LGBTQ+ Pride is back to show everybody ‘young and old they are loved for being themselves’.

The celebrations return for a second year with music, DJs and drag on 19 and 20 April evenings at the White Horse.

The main event will run from 10-5pm on Saturday at Aberystwyth Bandstand with stalls from artists and charities plus badge-making, face painting, sports and games from Ceredigion County Council.

Organiser Ren Skalka set up the grand affair with the help of five trusty volunteers: “It's important for the community to come together, more so than ever as hate crimes against LGBTQ+ people are on the rise.

“I want to show everyone, young and old, they are loved and supported and celebrated for being themselves.”
