Proud2Be Project CIC is a community-led social enterprise that exists to empower all lesbian, gay, bisexual &/or trans+ (LGBT+) people, their friends and families, to be proud of who they are. Based in South Devon.
Proud2Be began four years ago when founders, Mat and Jon Price, sat in front of their web cam and recorded a short video. In the video, they explained how they are both “proud to be gay”.
The brothers then invited others to record similar videos. Since then a number of high profile LGBT+ figures have contributed to the Proud2Be campaign including Stephen Fry who in his own words is happy to be counted as a proud supporter of Proud2Be at every turn. Stephen has also shown his support ‘tweeting’ about the project on several occasions to his 10.8 million twitter followers.
After participating in the Princes Trust Enterprise Programme, Proud2Be received a grant from the Trust to participate in World Pride, held in London in 2012.
With support from Cornwall School for Social Entrepreneurs, Proud2Be officially launched their online campaign in July.
