Proud2Be is a grassroots user-led social enterprise that supports all LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, questioning, queer, intersex, asexual, pansexual, non-binary + more) 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, twins Max and Maya Price set up Proud2Be in 2011 by launching the Proud2Be campaign which features videos and photos from various public figures and members of the public.

Since then, Proud2Be has established itself as a well-respected social enterprise, facilitating various groups and events for adults and families, including an online group, an in-person evening group in Newton Abbot, an in-person family-friendly Saturday group in Newton Abbot, a low-key in-person group in Newton Abbot, a monthly parent/carer support group in Newton Abbot, various one-off events throughout the year all over South Devon and 121 adult support.

Proud2Be also runs a youth project, which includes in-person weekly youth groups in South Devon and 121 youth support.

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