One of our new Equality objectives is to ‘Promote and celebrate the diversity of our Borough and foster community cohesion’. With this in mind, we have registered a walking group for London gay Pride which takes place on Saturday 25th June 2016.
Gay pride or Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward LGBT eople to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance. Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements throughout the world.
The theme for our walking group will be ‘Celebrating the Diversity of our Borough’ and we are hoping for as many people as possible including staff, senior managers, elected members, partners, stakeholders and community groups to join us.
If you or your organisation are interested in joining us on the parade, then email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
