Pride season is here

This year there’s lots to take part in to celebrate Pride season from 1-30 June

Not only is it 50 years since the first Pride march in the UK but it’s also the tenth anniversary of our LGBT+ staff network group Spectrum.

Over the years Spectrum have developed a strong network of colleagues who have raised money for numerous charities and supported colleagues at both L&Q and THT and our LGBT+ resident forum. With their support we have appeared six times in the Stonewall top 100 employers for inclusion in the workplace.

Pride events:

London Pride

London Pride parade on 2 July in collaboration with HouseProud - this is the first Pride parade since 2019, when we were struck by the Covid pandemic so expect it to be a big party to commemorate 50 years since the first Pride march.

If you want to join us in the parade, please email spectrum@lqgroup.org.uk. There are a limited number of places for staff and members of the LGBT+ Resident Forum.

If you would like to be a spectator and show your support visit the London Pride website and find out more about the route.

There is also a Picnic in the Park which starts at around 11.30am in Hyde Park. This is a family friendly gathering before the parade itself

Black Pride

Black Pride is happening in collaboration with HouseProud on 14 August at The Queen Elizabeth Park, Stratford.

Manchester Pride

For our friends in the north, this event will take place on August bank holiday weekend. Everyone is welcome.
