After a Covid-induced hiatus, Grampian Pride is back on 28th May 2022! Aberdeen Taxis takes a look at the day’s schedule!
The event is back to bring the local LGBT+ community and its allies together to celebrate.
The theme for this year’s LGBT+ Pride event will be a ‘just be yourself’ message! You’re encouraged to show up and celebrate yourself as well as everyone else in the community and associated with it.
This Saturday the 28th of May, the streets of Aberdeen will be a rainbow of colours, flags and beautiful people representing all parts of the LGBT+ community.
Aberdeen Taxis has the lowdown on what’s happening on the day!
11:00am – 12:00pm
The parade begins at 11 am from Holburn Junction (Albyn Place) and will end at Marischal College at around noon. The wonderful Annie Wallace (best known for portraying Sally St. Claire in Hollyoaks) will be leading the parade.
Queuing for the parade starts at 9 am, so be sharp if you want to be near the front as there is expected to be a great turnout this year.
