Ask For Clive announces the first Pub Pride event

Graham Robson June 1, 2021

Ask For Clive, a charity combatting discrimination in the LGBTQ+ community and encouraging entertainment venues to become safer more inclusive spaces, has announced the launch of its first ever Pub Pride nationwide event.

This inaugural event takes place across the UK on Friday, July 23 and encourages venues across the country to host Pride events. Pub Pride is a nationwide campaign that is activated locally – it gives landlords total freedom to set the scale and content of the night in a manner that is tailored to their community. 

Ask For Clive has launched the event as a way to unite LGBTQ+ communities across the UK to celebrate the end of lockdown and Pride season 2021, while supporting businesses that have suffered from the economic ramifications of the pandemic.

Pub owners and managers looking to take part in Pub Pride 2021 can register their venue by CLICKING HERE and purchasing one of two event kits from the charity. All profits made from these kits will be split between Ask For Clive and the venue’s local UK Pride organisation. 

Danny Clare, Co-Founder of Ask For Clive, said: We are proud to be uniting the UKs LGBTQ+ community on one big night in July. We have already seen an overwhelming response from venues across the country reaching out to learn more about the night, it is shaping up to be a national event reaching pubs in all corners of the UK. We cannot wait to paint the country with a rainbow and show the world that the UK is one of the most inclusively diverse and accepting countries.

“It has been a horrific year and we want to give the community one night to celebrate who they are, what they stand for and to reunite. What’s more we will be raising funds for both the charity and local UK Pride organisations to continue supporting the wider community.

“The night will play an important role, especially for those who have come-out during the pandemic and have not been able to experience the love and support within their local LGBTQ+ community due to restrictions.”
