Abstract

Academic literature has typically taken a metro-centric perspective to studying LGBTQI+ pride events; with limited attention being paid to rural LGBTQI+ pride events, particularly from an organisation perspective. This study addresses this gap by developing a framework to assist with the organisation of pride events in rural communities. Ten experts with experience of organising such events in rural communities were interviewed. The aim of the interview was to identify the components that needed to be managed when organising such an event and considerations relevant to implementing each component. Seventeen components were identified that needed to be addressed at different points in the event organisation process – that is before the event, during the event, and after the event. Based on these components, the Rural Pride Event Organisation Framework is put forward.
