Andy is a local guy who has been involved with organising Hull Pride for several years. He joined the Hull LGBT Forum when he came out in 2002 and is a Pride regular in Bradford, Manchester and Gran Canaria.
Hull Pride was launched back in 2002, that first event, held in Queen’s Gardens, was much smaller and was intended to bring together the LGBT community of Hull in a fun, welcoming environment. It also included a more politically orientated means of protest and a march. More recently, we have focussed more on celebration and integration.
Those first few years were a huge success, well beyond the expectations of the organisers, and it eventually became necessary to move to a bigger venue away from the city centre. First Pearson Park, then West Park. Since then, Hull Pride has continued to go from strength to strength culminating in the 2010 event which saw 10,000 people attending throughout the day.
