Everyone is welcome to celebrate Pride including people living with a disability. Our aim is for Channel Islands Pride to be accessible for everyone who would like to attend.

The Parade

Channel Islands Pride Map Parade Route

The parade route from Candie Gardens to Market Square is as follows:

Leave Candie Gardens via the bottom exit, cross St Julian’s Avenue into St Anne’s Place (Swoffers, OGH), continue down Smith Street turning right on to the High Street. Through Church Square and up the rainbow steps in to the Market and you have arrived at the Pride Village.
The route takes about 15 minutes to walk and is approximately half a kilometre.

Marshalls will be available on the day of Pride to assist you. Please look for their hi-vis jackets with the Liberate’s name on them. These people can arrange for assistance to get from Candie Gardrens to the Pride Village or assist in any other way they can.

We will have a ‘quiet space’ at Pride for people who are neurodivergent (autistic, ADHD etc) or who simply find large crowds and the hustle and bustle of Pride too much. This will be located inside the market buildings in the Chamber of Commerce office. It will be kindly staffed by Autism Guernsey and has been kindly funded by the Saffery Champness Rotary Walk.

Toilet facilities in the Pride Village include an accessible port-a-loo and accessible toilets in the market buildings.

Wheelchair users and people with mobility issues:

If you are a manual wheelchair user and the parade route is difficult for you to march alone, please contact us via hello@liberate.gg and we can provide a buddy who can help to push you. If you have limits to your mobility and would like to march in the parade, please contact us to discuss your requirements, we will have spaces in some of the parade for vehicles.

People with visual impairments

There is a lot of street furniture on the route and with crowds of people around, this may not be visible until you are on top of it. If you would like a buddy to take your arm or give verbal descriptions on the parade, or would like to be transported on one of our vehicles please contact us.

People for whom noise is problematic

Pride is noisy. There will be music, people talking loudly, whistles, cheers etc. If you would like ear plugs to reduce the noise on the day, please find one of our marshals who can provide you with a pair. There will also be a quiet space at the Pride Village inside the Market Building in the Chamber of Commerce office. Please use this space to take time out if you need, members of Autism Guernsey will be looking after that area.

Other disabilities

If there are any other barriers that would make the parade route or Pride Village difficult for you, please contact us to discuss how we can make adjustments to enable you to enjoy the day.
