We can’t wait to see the talent Glasgow has to offer!
Pride’s Got Talent exists to ensure the huge pool of local talent in the Glasgow area are given a fair chance to take part in Pride Glasgow. As well as the thrill of playing to thousands, it’s an opportunity to gain industry recognition and advance your career.
While the majority of entrants are usually Scottish LGBTI+ performers, nobody is excluded; anyone over the age of 16 can take part regardless of age, disability or sexuality.
