About Proud2Be

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, 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 an online group, a face-to-face evening group in Newton Abbot, a face-to-face Saturday group in Newton Abbot and Totnes Pride. The groups and events are supported by a volunteer base of 55 and rising.

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