Celebrate Pride month in Hammersmith & Fulham

This June we are celebrating Pride month with a range of free events. Everyone's welcome to come along and wave their rainbow flags throughout H&F.

June is Pride month. It's when we commemorate and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.  Pride Month is about acceptance, equality and celebrating the work of LGBTQ+ people.

This year we're building on the fun of our 2023 Pride Walk with West London Queer Project and packing H&F full of events. Including charity fundraisers, live music, author readings and more. Everyone is welcome to get involved.

If you're hosting a Pride month event, let us know. Email tickets@lbhf.gov.uk
