Pride Cymru ( formerly Cardiff Mardi Gras ) is a registered charity that exists to promote equality and reduce hate crime.
Organisers are encouraging festival-goers not only to have a great day out and celebrate diversity, but to fill the streets of Cardiff with colour, floats and carnival for the occasion.
This year’s attraction will kick off at midday and feature ten hours of music and entertainment as well as advice and support for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities.
The first acts confirmed are Eternal and Union J.
In addition to the summertime party atmosphere, Pride Cymru will feature a traditional funfair, a cultural market with arts and crafts, food and drink, and a social hub for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender communities and their friends and family, offering advice and support.
This year the main event will be supported by a wider Pride Cymru Festival, scheduled to take place in the week leading up to the main event, and will include several cultural satellite events in partner venues throughout the city,
