A new LGBT event is set to come to Aberdeen next year.
Grampian Pride will be held on May 26 and thousands of people are expected to attend.
Plans are at an early stage but organisers hope it will feature a march, speeches and music.
Justine Smithies, co-chairwoman of Grampian Pride, said: “This is our first event in Aberdeen and we hope people come out to show support for the LGBT community.
“I think Aberdeen really needs one as there are so many around the country.
“I spoke at the first Isle of Wight Pride event this year and more than 5,000 people turned out for it.
“This is a kind of protest and we want to change people’s views.”
Plans for the event include a march down the length of Union Street and a stage beside the Beach Boulevard where there will be speeches and music.
Justine, who came out as transgender in 2007, said: “The event is very much in the early stages but we have talked to the council about the march and the stage.
“Now it is about getting the speakers and the acts to play.
“We are speaking to a couple of acts so hopefully we will be able to reveal them soon.”
A committee has been set up to organise the event.
Justine added: “We have a fair number of people on the committee so we are just getting ideas together for the event.
“I am going down to Blackpool in October to get some ideas.
“At the moment we are looking for people in the North-east to help us design a logo.”
