Proud2Be

Proud2Be CIC is a social enterprise that supports lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and/or questioning+ (LGBTQ+) people and their families, in South Devon and beyond, to lead empowered, fulfilled and authentic lives.

Inspired by their own experiences of bullying, discrimination and shame- identical twins Max & Maya Price set up Proud2Be in 2011 when they recorded the first Proud2Be video. Since then various public figures and members of the public have contributed to the campaign.

Proud2Be facilitates a number of groups and events, including a social evening, a Saturday group and Totnes Pride. In 2014, Proud2Be launched its youth project which now includes a youth group and 1:1 support.

Proud2Be delivers workshops to students and awareness training to organisations around the UK. In 2016, the social enterprise was announced as 1 of 12 organisations in the National Anti-HBT Bullying Alliance, an innovative schools project led by Consortium and funded by the Government Equalities Office.

In 2017, Proud2Be was announced as one of the partners of the Devon Engagement Service led by Living Options Devon.

Following a successful trial in 2014, Proud2Be launched a campaign to install Europe’s first permanent rainbow crossing in Totnes.
