Stonewall, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans equality charity, is proud to announce that it will be sponsoring UK Black Pride for the fifth year in a row.
The event in London Vauxhall’s Pleasure Gardens celebrates the diversity of the LGBT community, and provides strong role models from the African, Asian and Caribbean heritage.
Stonewall is committed to ensuring that LGBT role models and allies are visible throughout public life, in order to create an environment that enables all lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people to participate fully in society. Its vision is of a world where everyone, everywhere, is free to be themselves.
Stonewall currently works with over 700 workplaces, 12,000 schools, 60 local authorities, sports clubs, community groups and international human rights defenders to make a difference for LGBT equality.
Stonewall is immensely proud to continue to support UK Black Pride in its tenth anniversary year. We’re committed to working with partners and communities to help create real change for LGBT people here and abroad. So much has been achieved so far, but we still have a lot to do until everyone is accepted without exception. Events like UK Black Pride are vital to celebrate our diverse community, including all the amazing individuals who will continue to work together until true equality is realised for everyone.
