Harrow goes to PRIDE – June 25, 2016

Rainbow-Flag-150x150One of the Council’s new Equality objectives is to ‘Promote and celebrate the diversity of the Borough and foster community cohesion’. With this in mind, they’ve registered a walking group for London gay Pride which takes place on Saturday 25th June 2016.

“Gay pride”, says the council, “or Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (LGBT) pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward LGBT people 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 the walking group will be ‘Celebrating the Diversity of our Borough’ and they are hoping for as many people as possible including staff, senior managers, elected members, partners, stakeholders and community groups to join them. If you or your organisation are interested in joining the parade, then email equalities@harrow.gov.uk for further information.
