About Hits Radio Pride

Hits Radio Pride was the UK’s first national commercial LGBTQ+ radio station by a major broadcaster. As a sister station to Hits Radio, the station is a fresh and unique destination where the LGBTQ+ community, advocates and allies can feel connected, safe and proud to be themselves. In addition to entertaining audiences by playing music much-loved by the community, Hits Radio Pride is a trusted platform that inspires, educates and informs listeners of LGBTQ+ issues and encourages inclusion and tolerance. This includes award-winning content such as ‘Tough Talks’ – exploring the hard conversations the community have around coming out – or ‘Faith, Sex and Me’ – discovering how people balance being part of the community with their religion. Hits Radio Pride also works with LGBT charity helpline, Switchboard, to promote support services.
