Isle of Wight Pride

The very first Isle of Wight Pride took place on the Island on 15th July 2017.

It was a hugely successful day attracting visitors from around the Island and across the water. Soon after the event, a date for 2018 was announced: Saturday 21st July.

The 2018 event will also incorporate UK Pride for the first time after winning a competition to host the event.

Below are some of the articles published through OnTheWight mentioning Isle of Wight Pride.
