Essex Pride was founded in 2003 as a cornerstone event showcasing Essex’s successful approach to diversity and inclusion. Held in Chelmsford every summer, Essex Pride seeks to inspire everyone to embrace equality, and demonstrate that people from all walks of life can join together and celebrate diversity.
