The group, run entirely by a small team of volunteers, were given the Charity/Group Initiative Award at the Proud Scotland Awards 2024.

The aim of the awards is honour and encourage those who stand up for diversity, equality and inclusion.

In response to the award, the Pride in Moray committee released a joint statement which said: “Thank you so much to everyone who supports us, to our amazing team of volunteers who keep us running, and to our beautiful colourful Moray community of LBGT+ people and allies.”

The next annual Pride in Moray parade and afterparty is going to take place on Saturday, September 7.

The parade, which will be in Grant Park, Forres, this year is free to attend, with donations welcome throughout the year.
