Record Turnout Expected For Fifth CI Pride Event

Islanders march down Mulcaster Street at one of the previous Channel Island Pride marches.

Organisers of this year's Channel Islands Pride event say they're expecting a record turnout.

Members of the LGBTQ+ community and their friends and family are gathering in the Royal Square from 1pm, before marching to Jardins de la Mere at 2pm.

Live music, food stalls and a children's play area have been laid on there, forming a 'Pride Village' to help celebrate the island's diverse community.

It's the first time the event's been held at the St Helier seafront, being dubbed '#PrideOnTheBeach'.

Organiser, Christian May, says it'll be a family-friendly community event encouraging us to come together and celebrate by the sea:

“I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the milestone of five years of Channel Islands Pride – it’s like nothing we’ve seen before and we can’t wait to welcome everyone – LGBTQ+ or allies, people from Jersey, Guernsey and visitors from overseas – to really celebrate our Islands in all their diversity.”
