Visible Pride is a visual arts festival in the frame of FolkestonePride, celebrating the diversity & lives of LGBTQI+ people across geography & time. Occupying several well know venues within Folkestone's creative landscape; Visible Pride claims the towns histories & spaces - while imagining new queer futures - as an inclusive act of LGBTQI+ visibility & pride. Visible Pride is art made by minorities for minorities while welcoming everyone to engage. Exhibited in highly visible cultural spaces in Folkestone, Visible Pride seeks to heighten the
quality of life for all by inviting a celebration of difference & nourishing exceptional cultural diversity within the visual arts.
