Dundee Pride has been awarded thousands of pounds from the Big Lottery Fund.
The group has been given £10,000 which will allow it to host the first LGBT Pride celebration in the city later this year.
The festival celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) culture is the first of its kind to be held in the City of Discovery.
Posting on its new website, which launched on Wednesday, co-chair Tommy Small said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this funding support from Big Lottery’s Awards for All programme.
“The event is due to take place on September 22 on City Square, with the backing of Dundee City Council and groups representing lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
“We look forward to using the funding to stage a unique and truly Dundonian Pride event that celebrates equality.”
Dundee Pride’s forthcoming celebration should be a colourful event.Fellow co-chair Tim Kelly said: “We are thrilled that Dundee Pride has been awarded £10,000 from the Big Lottery Fund’s Awards for All programme. The award is allowing us to put on the inaugural Pride event for our great city while also building the organisation to ensure Dundee Pride happens every year.
“By building a sustainable Dundee Pride organisation, we will help to create a city and region where LGBT+ people have a strong sense of community, are a visible social group, can celebrate our history, activism and sexual and gender diversity, and experience self-affirmation, dignity and equality of rights.”
Organisers are hoping for a turnout of 5,000 people on the day.
Festivities kick off from noon with a procession on the Murraygate, leaving from City Square and heading along High Street, Reform Street and Panmure Street.
Tayside Deaf Hub will bring British Sign Language interpreters on the day.
The main event site, including a bar, will open at 1pm with a keynote speech scheduled for 45 minutes later.
Live entertainment will be on until 7pm.
