A council report on the event states: “Plans are underway with Aberdeen City Council, Four Pillars and GREC to bring a Gay Pride event to Aberdeen in the summer of 2018.

“The event is designed to celebrate the LGBT+ community, improve the general public’s awareness of this community, and assist in ACC’s compliance with the Equality Act 2010 General Duty.”
