Trans Pride 2020

ANNOUNCEMENT- Due to the Covid 19 (Coronavirus) pandemic the hard decision has been made to cancel Trans Pride Scotland 2020

What is Trans Pride?

March

Trans Pride 2020 will begin with a march through the streets of Paisley. Please bring placards/signs if you like.

Mustering for the march will begin at 12:00 midday at County Square, just outside Paisley Gilmour Street Station. We plan to be visible, audible and very findable.

At 12:30, the march will depart and follow the planned route along the High Street. The march will arrive at UWS Students’ Union by 13:00 and our group will head into the main hall.

Market

After the marchers have arrived at the main hall at 13:00 there will be a brief housekeeping speech.

Refreshments will be available for purchase from the Union bar.

Workshops will be run in adjoining rooms and the main hall will have several stalls running. If you or your organisation would like to run a stall or a workshop, please visit the ‘Get Involved’ section below.

An accessible quiet space will be available on Level 2 for anyone who needs it.

An open mic will be running in the main hall to share stories and more. To get a slot on the open mic please contact the trans pride volunteers managing the stage on the day.

Get Involved

This event would be boring with no stalls and workshops, and lost without stewards and other volunteers. If you want to be a part of this event, please respond to the forms below. We are excited to hear from you.
