March with Pride

There are many ways which you can get involved in the parade.

Autism Friends is proud to be partnered with Wigan Pride for the third year running. Helping to work towards an autism friendly Wigan Pride.

Autism Friends aims to increase understanding of autism and inspire people to take action to support people with autism, and their families, in their community.


The initiative has been developed by local organisations including Wigan Council, Inspiring healthy lifestyles and the Wigan Autism Partnership Board to increase awareness and understanding of autism how people living with autism will encounter situations which encourages people to think differently about autism across the Wigan Borough.

Autism Friendly Pride

We are currently working behind the scenes to ensure we bring you an Autism Friendly Pride. Please check back soon.

The Store

Donate

 Your donations keep us marching.

We welcome any donation, no matter how small, towards Wigan Pride.

 

The need for Pride is as strong as ever. A huge amount of progress has been made for LGBTQ+ community but the reality is, the struggle is far from over.

Members of the LGBTQ+ community still face so many challenges and stigmas, from kissing their loved ones in public, coming out to their friends, colleagues and family or even just being able to walk down the road as who they truly are.

That’s why Wigan Pride is free for anyone to attend and why we’re committed to making Pride the platform for all voices and the entire LGBTQ+ community. But, we can’t do it without your support.

So, whether you come to Wigan Pride to celebrate, demonstrate or simply party, it’s only free thanks to the generosity of our partners and from the kindness of donations from those who march with and for us.
