Reading Pride 2023 needs you!

A group of students at Reading event Love Unites

Join students and staff on 2 September to represent the University at Reading Pride  

The University of Reading, Reading Students’ Union and our LGBTQIA+ communities will be returning to Reading Pride this year. Reading Pride’s Love Unites Parade and Festival 2023 will be held on Saturday 2 September 2023 at King’s Meadow, Reading.   

All students and staff, whether LGBTQIA+ persons, allies or friends, are invited for a day of fun and celebration. We are looking for volunteers to represent the University’s LGBTQIA+ communities in several important roles on the day:  

  • Support for the UoR stall  
  • Photography and videography for our UoR LGBTQIA+ archives (experience required) 
  • Face painting and glitter support at the UoR stall (experience required) 
  • Representing UoR in the Reading Pride Parade (bring your best signs and chants) 

The parade leaves Reading Station at 10:45 and arrives at Kings Meadow at around 12:00. The festival hosts a range of activities and entertainment with something for everybody, including live entertainment from cabaret and drag, music, comedians, games and karaoke, as well as a range of food and drink options. 

Over 13,000 people took part last year, making it the biggest Pride event ever hosted in the town.
