Bringing communities together to celebrate LGBTQIA+ and diversity.


We are working to change attitudes by providing young people and our communities with a safe space to explore their identity and be proud of who they are.



About Us

Pride in Teesdale is a vibrant initiative dedicated to supporting young people, individuals, and families within the LGBTQIA+ community.

Our mission is to foster an inclusive environment where everyone feels valued and understood. Through educational programs, support groups, and community events, we aim to celebrate diversity, promote understanding, and advocate for equality.

Our project not only provides a safe space for LGBTQIA+ individuals to express themselves but also works tirelessly to raise awareness and support within the wider Teesdale area.

Are you part of the LGBTQIA+ community and interested in Film?

If you or someone you know is interested in filmmaking, and is part of the LGBTQIA+ community or is an ally and wants to meet other local queer people, this could be the opportunity for you!

We’ve recently received funding to start an exciting film project and we’d love for you to get involved.
