Pride Scotia March Route Announced


May 30th, 2018


Pride Edinburgh 2018: True Colours is proud to announce the route for the 2018 Pride Scotia March. Pride Scotia was our former name and to create a unique link to our heritage and the ongoing march to full global equality for the LGBTQ+ community we retained and apply the name Pride Scotia to our annual march.
In 2017 owing to council restrictions and roadworks we were forced to use a secondary and far less visible route through the city, we are delighted to say in 2018 following discussion with the City Council and Partners, we will once again return to the heart of the city. The route is as follows:
