What we're about

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

Inspired by the mental health issues they faced as a result of the bullying, isolation and discrimination they experienced growing up as LGBTQ+ in a rural village, identical twins Max and Maya Price set up Proud2Be in 2011 by launching the Proud2Be campaign which now features videos and photos from various public figures and members of the public.

In a short time, Proud2Be has established itself as a well-respected social enterprise, facilitating various groups and events including a fortnightly online group, a fortnightly Newton Abbot group and Totnes Pride.

Proud2Be also runs a youth project, which includes weekly youth groups in Totnes and Newton Abbot, a 121 youth support programme and a family support group.

Proud2Be delivers interactive workshops to students and awareness training to organisations and schools around the UK.
