Cumbria Pride's Virtual Project

We started our Virtual Project in September 2020 in response to the cancellation of our Pride event, as a way to continue supporting our LGBT+ community during lockdown. It was initially planned to run up to our next physical Pride event. Through listening to the views of our community on our Summer 2021 survey we have decided to continue our Virtual Project, and as requested we will now bring shorter, more regular snippets of information your way.


You can find the Virtual Project on FacebookTikTokand YouTube:

We are welcoming everybody who wants to contribute to this project to get involved! To do this we are asking for voluntary submissions of recorded footage. This could be a short message or statement relating to any LGBT+ issue. We would love as many people to get involved as possible and there are only a few simple rules you need to follow to do so:


  • Make your recording using a phone/camera/camcorder/etc, but make sure it is filmed in landscape mode so that it will fill the screen (HD preferred)

  • Recordings can be as short as 15 seconds up to 5 minutes long

  • Cumbria Pride is family friendly so recordings must be suitable for all ages

  • Please do not add any icons, graphics, frames or captioning to your recording

  • We cannot accept any copywrite material so please only send recordings you can legally allow us to share

  • You are welcome to submit as many different recordings as you like
