I'm thrilled to have been asked to become a patron of Proud2Be. Their 2015 Pride was a model of what LGBT+ community events should be - inclusive, intersectional, challenging, supportive and genuinely welcoming. Long may they continue.

Proud2Be has given me a supportive network of friends and a safe place to be myself. They are so welcoming and infectiously happy all the time. I could not ask for a better group of people!

It gladdens my heart to be asked to become a patron of Proud2Be. I am delighted to be part of the great work they are doing to raise the profile of LGBTIQ people in Devon.

I was delighted to receive the invitation to become a patron of Proud2Be. It strikes me as such an important project and I’ve been a supporter all the way. I feel confident they will continue doing good work.

Heading back to school for awards evening sporting my Proud2Be t-shirt, because if it weren't for them there's no way I'd have done as well as I did in exams, or as much as I did for LGBTQIA+ visibility and acceptance.

I am proud to be a patron of Proud2Be. The best weapon against prejudice is openness; every person who is open about who they are and who they love breaks the collective closet that has for so long immured LGBTQ people. That expands our ability to live our lives fully, to marry whom we wish, and to experience joy.

Andrew Solomon

Proud2Be is an amazing organisation. They are really engaged with their communities and their social events manage to bring together the whole diversity within the LGBT community.
