Cornwall Pride 2022 ignites Truro as colourful participants make their way through the streets

Cornwall Pride returned to the region for another year – with a brand new home in Truro

Cornwall Pride has returned to Truro in an explosion of colour. This year, the parade marched through Truro, before gathering in Lemon Quay in the city.

2022 marks the 50th anniversary of pride in the UK, and today’s event in Truro saw locals walk the streets in a proud celebration of diversity and individuality. The parade marched from Victoria Gardens through the city and finished at the main event at Lemon Quay.

With live performances, stalls and stands, and groups offering advice, the family-friendly event saw the community come together in a celebration of diversity and inclusion across the LGBTQ and marginalised communities. There have been a number of pride events across Cornwall in recent months, beginning with Falmouth in May and ending with Truro. The last event was in Redruth on July 23.
