Since its beginnings, the event has become very popular and includes a procession, a picnic and an exceptionally large rainbow flag. The rainbow flag is a symbol of diversity often used by the LGBTQ+ community to represent equality; it can also be a symbol of peace.
Cornwall Pride is Cornwall’s largest celebration of diversity. It was started in 2008 and aims to raise support, increase awareness and act as a celebration in Cornwall for LGBTQ+ and marginalised communities.
