Proud Watford's Vision & Mission


Our vision is for Watford to be "A Place Without Prejudice".


A town where members of the LGBTQI+ communtiy and the wider Watford community is entirely at ease with itself and each other and where everyone takes active and ongoing steps to create and develop a wholly inclusive local community that recognises the importance of self-expression, ability and disability.

To deliver a range of Proud Watford branded primarily artistic events working alongside Watford people, groups, organisations, businesses and other allies, with the aim of promoting LGBTQI+ visibility and equality through accessible and widely appealing performance, outreach, signposting and information.
