The highlight of the day will be the impressive line-up of performers and headliners gracing the stage. Prepare to be mesmerized by the infectious beats of Booty Luv, the soulful vocals of Angie Brown, and the incredible talents of Jaymi Hensley, MKSM, Allan Jay, and RuPaul's Drag Race UK's Copper Top, among many other artists.

Richard Stevens, chairperson of Pride in Gloucestershire said: "Pride in Gloucestershire is dedicated to creating a safe and welcoming space for all LGBTQ+ individuals and their allies."

"Our annual Pride event is a celebration of love, acceptance, and unity, where everyone can come together to be themselves and stand proudly in their identity. As with previous years, the Pride March will also be a prominent feature of the event, further solidifying the organization's commitment to raising awareness and fostering a sense of community.
