PRIDE is all about being proud of who you are no matter who you love or how you identify.
PRIDE is celebrated in the month of June and is a time dedicated to celebrating LGBTQI+ communities all around the world. PRIDE is a celebration of people coming together in love and friendship, to show how far LGBTQI+ rights have come and how, in some places there’s still work to be done.
PRIDE month is about acceptance, equality, celebrating the work of LGBTQI+ people, education in LGBTQ+ history and raising awareness of issues affecting the LGBTQI+ community.
How’s PRIDE celebrated?
PRIDE is a celebration of diversity, inclusion and visibility, as well as an event to continue the fight for equality, it’s about giving the community a platform to make their voices heard. It’s also, of course, a fantastic chance for a party.
There are PRIDE events across the UK and Central Co-op is supporting a selection. come and join us.
