This week, Cornwall Pride Chairman Matthew Kenworthy has put forward a bid to host UK Pride 2021. An award recently awarded to Newry in Northern Ireland this year and to Newcastle next year aswell as Hull and the Isle of Wight in previous years :this will consist of a three day event held across the Duchy.
The event will celebrate Diversity and Equality right across the LGBTQ+ Community whilst making Cornwall a focal point for Global Pride Movement. 2021 will also coincide with the 50th anniversary of Cornwall receiving a national identity status giving the Duchy both National and International recognition at the same time.
Western Supermare, Oxford and Lancaster are other Pride Organisers that have bid. The vote will be made by the UK pride organisers Committee in the coming months.
