Comic Relief is proud to support Pride
We respect and support everyone’s right to be who they are and love who they love, so for over 25 years we’ve funded work that fights for equality and against discrimination. And although Pride’s going to be slightly different this year, we still want to take a moment to celebrate and make sure everyone feels proud and united.
In collaboration with artist Josh McKenna, we are launching a limited edition tote bag to celebrate Pride. You can also get your hands on a limited edition free* Comic Relief Pride pin badge designed by the same artist.

Win a trip to 2021 Eurovision Song Contest Grand Final
We’ve teamed up with Sink the Pink and Netflix to launch this exclusive prize draw to celebrate Pride and the launch of the epic new film - Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga.
Sink The Pink
We’re really excited to have joined forces with the largest LGBTQ+ collective in the UK, Sink The Pink, coming together to explore what Pride means and help bring people together throughout Pride month, even though we’re apart. We’re also putting on a whole host of celebrations, prize draws and limited-edition merchandise. Because Pride represents more than just one day, and Comic Relief is here all year around.
History of Comic Relief and Pride
For over 25 years we’ve supported the LGBTQ+ community through funding projects that have challenged stigmas, fought for equal rights, supported those who are struggling with their identity and who have been marginalised and discriminated against. This Pride, we’re celebrating by taking a look back at some of them, alongside key milestones in LGBTQ+ equality.
All donations will fund projects that support LGBTQ+ people in the UK and around the world.

A huge thank you to our friends at Sainsbury’s, who are working with us to provide essential funding for akt, Albert Kennedy Trust, this Pride.

Whether they are experiencing homelessness or living in a hostile environment, akt supports young people into safe homes and employment, education or training, in a welcoming and open environment that celebrates LGBTQ+ identities.
