Pride Month, which is a celebration of LGBTQ+ rights and culture, is underway for the month of June and will see several events take place in and around Southampton.

Following the return of the Party in the Park event at Palmerston Park over the weekend, there will still be plenty of options to go to if you missed out on that one.

Pride events will also not be limited to just June, with many taking place over the summer in general.

From Southampton, Lymington, Eastleigh and more, here are the occasions you can attend over the next couple of months.
