Organisers of Coventry Pride have called for LGBT art, music and spoken work to tell the story of 'Our Journey'.

The festival has announced that in line with their long term goal to have a city wide celebratory, commemorative, cultural and educational LGBT Pride in the city, Coventry Pride will partner with Fargo Village to hold the first ever Coventry Pride Fringe at the venue, as well as the main festival in The Coventry University Square opposite the city's historic Cathedral.

The Fringe is set to have local music acts, an LGBT+ Art Exhibition in The Box, which will feature both art, music and spoken word to give a 'cultural feast not just for the eyes'.

The Coventry Pride LGBT+ Art Exhibition is expected to showcase the full depth and breadth of art that LGBT+ artists create, whether it's painting, photography or sculpture. Coventry Pride say you don't have to be a professional and will welcome submissions from all over the community.

The exhibition is looking for submissions in the following categories:

 'On Our Journey' - pieces which reflect either your journey to equality or the journey of people within the LGBT+ community towards Equality.

'Our History' - pieces which were created by LGBT+ historical figures or have been created with LGBT+ history as reference or subject.

'Our Life' - Pieces which reflect our everyday lives as LGBT+ people this can be celebratory of our newly acquired rights or can draw attention to the continued inequalities that we face.

 'Our Culture' - Pieces which celebrate our beautifully diverse LGBT+ culture.

The two day showcase is said to be an important part of Coventry Pride’s cultural impact to the city and will take place during the entirety of the main Pride event on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 June.
