Trans Pride flags flying high

🎟️ Ticket Office closed until next Trans Pride Scotland

Participating in our pride will always be free, however we do ask that you please register by getting a ticket. This is essential to help us better gauge numbers, ensure attendee safety, and keep in touch with you after the event.
This goes for 2025 too of course.

🦺 A huge thanks to all our Volunteers

Organising and running pride takes months of planning and preparation, and we could not manage without all our volunteers, both on the organising committee and on the day and days running up to our events themselves.🤝If you think you could spare a few hours on the day to give back to your community look out for opportunities as we publish them or get in touch with us at [email protected]. 📝Trans Pride Scotland is entirely peer-led and volunteer-driven, a collective effort in which everyone has something to contribute. Many hands make light work!

  • 🪧 March Stewards: ensure safety, hold signs, direct crowds, keep eyes peeled.

  • 🎟️ Venue Steward: check tickets, general help to run things smoothly.

  • 📸 Social Media: either to assist, or join the committee and fully manage it

  • Anything else: help out however you can with your own idea

Applications are currently closed but get in touch if you think you can help from now on.

Our Safe Space Commitment

A safe space is a space in which everyone feels welcome, respected and comfortable with being who they are. This includes people who facilitate and participate in stalls and workshops, access activities, volunteer or just attend.

How can we all create a safe space?

  • We listen to each other to understand, not just to respond.

  • We allow everyone a chance to speak.

  • We respect each other’s boundaries and only share what we feel comfortable sharing.

  • If we are unsure of someone’s boundaries, we always ask.

  • We think about our words and assumptions about others.

  • We speak respectfully about and stand up for others whether they are present or not.

How do I respond if I feel the safe space commitment has been broken?

  • If you feel able to, respectfully tell the person or people involved that you feel that they are breaking safe space, explaining to the person why.

  • Tell a TPS Steward, volunteer or committee member about how you are feeling either at the time or when you feel able via email: [email protected]

What if I find it difficult to uphold the safe space commitment?

  • Listen respectfully if someone tells you that you are making them uncomfortable and try to change your behaviour.

  • Ask TPS Steward, volunteer or committee member if you don’t understand expectations or why they are there.

  • If you feel unable to speak about your difficulties in the moment, then you can move to a different space.

  • Ask TPS Steward, volunteer or committee member for support.

OUR RECENT MARCH and event drew over 600 people on the day and was in the most a joyous celebration of trans rights and euphoria. Local trans folk voiced their appreciation of something happening on their doorstep so hopefully it gave the local trans community a boost.
A panel event was held in the afternoon at the event at Ayrshire College the panel consisted of Florence Oulds - Policy Officer Scottish Trans, Nathan Graham - STUC LGBT Workers Committee, Lisamarie Cohen - Convenor Trans Pride Scotland, and Emma Roddick MSP Minister for Equalities Migration and Refugees

Museum of Transology

TRANS PRIDE SCOTLAND collaborating with the MUSEUM of TRANSOLOGY helped in Glasgow and Dundee in the collection and documentation of objects brought along on Saturday 20th April for inclusion in the museum’s collection. Edinburgh Trans Pride collaborated similarly in Edinburgh. This is an important initiative which aims to record aspects of trans culture for future generations and is supported in Scotland by the National Library of Scotland. More info can be found here.


THE TRANS PRIDE SCOTLAND COMMITTEE has appointed two interim co convenors to serve until the AGM later this year. The committee is responsible for organising and running the annual march and event and other associated events, and is made up of volunteers. If you would like to be involved you might wish to be considered for election at the forthcoming AGM.


We would love to hear your thoughts on the march and event in Kilmarnock on the 30th March. Could you complete this feedback form.for us, it will give us a good idea of where we got things right and where we need to improve.
