Watch: Aberdeen goes wild for Grampian Pride parade

Aberdeen has proudly celebrated Grampian Pride’s 2021 Winter Parade. Grant Martin was there to share the wonderful spectrum of love in the city centre! Organisers held the 2020 and 2021 festivals online. Grampian Pride wanted to take advantage of the city opening up. They devised the Winter Parade instead of waiting until next year to get people together.

The parade was a huge success thanks to the glorious crowds bringing a splash of colour to the city centre. The sound of drums, whistles and cheers were followed by balloons, rainbow flags, wild outfits and startling make-up.

It’s been two long years since the last Grampian Pride parade in Aberdeen. Grampian Pride aims to bring the people of Aberdeen together. It’s also a chance to celebrate and provide a safe space for al LGBT+ people and straight allies. Four Pillars and other partners have organised Grampian Pride. As a local charity, their mission is to provide mental, physical, emotional and sexual health support to the LGBT+ communities.

About POST

Kevin Mitchell and Chris Sansbury founded POST from a desire to cut through the noise to share the great things that happen in Aberdeen. They therefore focus on community, culture and the interesting people of the city. The local artists, businesses and charities; photographers, musicians and entertainers; the people at a local level that make a positive impact on our city each and every day. So they use video, audio, writing and social media to amplify the voices in our community, and to ultimately give a platform to Aberdeen folk to engage and tell their own stories.

Recent work includes interviews with We Are Here Scotland founder Ica Headlam; Paralympic gold medalist, Neil FachieChef, an Aberdeen rapper who is pushing for success; an article by film director Mark Stirton about the state of high-rise buildings in the city; coverage of Nuart Aberdeen and TEDx Aberdeen, as well as coverage of British Art Show 9.
