The History of Pride (and why it's important)
When: 27 July at 14:30-16:30
Where: Leeds Central Library Room 700 Calverley Street, LS1 3AB Leeds
What: This year we’re celebrating the 11th year of Leeds Pride, the largest of the Pride events in Yorkshire and the largest Leeds City Centre event of the calendar with an estimated 40,000 visitors, coming from across the UK as one of the few remaining free to attend LGBT+ Pride celebrations to attend.
Although this opportunity to celebrate pride in our communities is important, and we should recognise the journey we’ve been on in the UK we also need to take the time to reflect on the historical importance of LGBT+ Pride events and acknowledge that there is still the requirement to build upon it’s foundations and stand up for full equality around the World.
We’re joined by Josh Willacy, an account manager from international campaigning charity Stonewall ,who is leading this session on the History of Pride (and why it’s important).
All welcome to join us, refreshments will be available shortly before the event starts at 2.30pm.
Hosted by: The LGB&T Agenda – Leeds
