Event description

Description

UPDATE: Please note that all wristsbands have been distributed and we are running a waiting list. Please do register for the waiting list and if a ticket becomes available you will recieve an email from Eventbrite giving you 24hrs to accept.


We still need some volunteers on the day. The main role is to be one of our 'wheel stewards'. This means you get to join the parade with us and be part of the fun! This would require you to arrive earlier than others (around 10am) and during the parade being near the wheels of our minibus to ensure the safety of those on board and also those around it. If you would like to be one of our 'wheel stewards' please email info@keshetuk.org.


In previous years we have a number of unclaimed wristbands on the day and we will not let them go to waste! Therefore, we will be re-distributing any leftover wristbands at 1.15pm (on the dot!) So if you still want to join us, please arrive at Great Portland Street tube station at 1.15pm and we hope you will be able to join the parade with us. If you have any other questions – please do let us know.


If you have a wristband and are no longer attening please return it through eventbrite OR email info@keshetuk.org to let us know you won't be attending and it will be given to the first person on the wait list. We do have a growing waiting list!

If you have got a wristband you should have received an email from KeshetUK with more information - if not - please do get in touch.

Thank you for wanting to be part of Pride in London with all the Jewish groups this year!

Pride in London request, as a security precaution, that you need a wristband in order to march in this year's Pride Parade. KeshetUK has been granted the wristbands on behalf of the Jewish groups and is coordinating registration for these on a strictly first come first served basis.

In previous years we have had feedback that Pride in London has not been accessible to those who are not able to stand or walk for the distance of the parade. This year we have been very fortunate to have a mini bus donated to us for the day which should offer those inside to have as great an experience as those marching on foot.It's a regular mini-bus that we hope to proudly dress and as we have a limited space, please do tick the box when you register for a wristband that you're interested in reserving a space in the mini bus and we will get back to you. Please do email us if you want more information about this: info@keshetuk.org.


You can register for these free wristbands now.

A KeshetUK representative will contact the person registering to confirm details (times and exact location to meet are still TBC) closer to the time. [Update: we have now emailed everyone who has registered with more information. Please email info@keshetuk.org if you have not received that email].

Wristbands will be available for collection in envelopes from KeshetUK volunteers (according to registration details) from our pre-Pride meeting point which is still to be confirmed. Wristbands will not be avilable to be collected prior to the event.


If you have any questions - please do let us know and we look forward to seeing you at Pride in London!



FAQs


Which Jewish groups will be marching and do I have to be a member of one to join in?

To march with us in Pride in London you don't need to be a member of any of the groups that are all joining together for the parade. You can come on your own, with your friends and on the day you'll hopefully make new friends!

Some of the groups coming together include (this list will be added to):

  • Imahot v’Avot is a social group for families who have one or more parent who identify as Jewish and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, or Questioning (LGBTQQ).
  • KeshetUK works to ensure a world where no one has to choose between their LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans) and Jewish identity. We work with schools, universities, synagogues, youth movements, other community organisations and individuals to broaden LGBT+ Jewish inclusion and incubate new projects as we plan for the future needs of LGBT+ individuals in the Jewish community.
  • West London Synagogue,
  • Jewish LGBT+ Group (formerly JGLG),
  • Gay Jews In London,
  • Beit Klal Yisrael,
  • Parents of Jewish Gays and Lesbians.


Is there a minimum age requirements to attend Pride?

No. There is no minimum age for Pride in London. KeshetUK does not take responsibility for those attending and if you're under 18, however, you will need to be accomodanied by a responsible adult. Also please note - everyone (including children and babies) is required to register for a wristband.

Pride in London is open to everyone! And anyone who wants to create an inclusive Jewish community is welcome to march with us! This year we will have a mini bus for those who would like to take part but walking/standing for that long is not appealing or an option! If you're interested in a seat in the mini bus - please do register for a wrist band and email us at info@keshetuk.org.

I've never been to a pride before - what should I do to prepare, what should I wear or bring along on the day?

Just bringing yourself is enough but here is a list of things to consider!

- Check the weather: You might want to prepare for a rainstorm or a heat wave! It's London in July after all - so we just never know whether it's sunglasses or umbrella weather (or both..).

- Noise makers: whistles, gregers, your voices! It's a fun day and some chants, singing and whistle always go down well!

- Snacks: We can spend some time standing around and you might get a bit hungry!

- LGBT+ flags/banners/placards: Always worth seeing if you've got rainbow (or other LGBT+) flags hidden away somewhere - perfect opportunity to fly them!

- Clothing: Wear whatever you feel most comfortable in! Whether that's jeans and a tshirt, ball gown, colourful clothing or not. Pride is about you being you and that means wearing whatever you feel best in.


Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. We will have a list of names.


Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

No. We have a large waiting list and so we ask that you let us know if you can't come either through Eventbrite or by emailing us.


How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please email info@keshetuk.org if you have any questions.
