Find out what’s happening this June to support and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.

What is Pride month?

Every year, Pride month takes place in June to commemorate the Stonewall Riots. It is an opportunity to remember all those who fought for, and continue to fight for, LGBTQ+ rights, celebrate gay culture and raise awareness of the issues that members of the community continue to face both in the UK and internationally.
