Visible Pride is an arts festival spanning Folkestone's LGBTQI+ Pride month (2 - 28 August), celebrating the diversity and lives of LGBTQI+ people across geography and time.
Occupying several well know venues within Folkestone's creative landscape; Visible Pride claims the towns histories and spaces - while imagining new queer futures - as an inclusive act of LGBTQI+ visibility and pride.
Visible Pride is art made by minorities for minorities, while welcoming everyone to engage. Exhibited in highly-visible cultural spaces in Folkestone, Visible Pride seeks to heighten the quality of life for all by inviting a celebration of difference and nourishing exceptional (cultural) diversity within the visual arts.
