Proud2Be CIC is a social enterprise that supports LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and/or questioning+) 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 social and Totnes Pride. In 2014, Proud2Be launched its youth project which now includes a youth group, 121 youth mentoring and a family support group.
Following a successful trial in 2014, Proud2Be launched a campaign to install Europe’s first permanent rainbow crossing in Totnes.
