Pride Month 2022

Pride Month 2022

June is Pride month and we are here to celebrate LGBTQ+ communities around the world. 

Pride is held in June as that’s the month the Stonewall riots took place in 1969. 

Pride is a celebration of love and friendship to show how far LGBTQ+ rights have come and where there is still work to be done. 

However, it was also borne out of protest and shines a light on the continued fight for equality led by LGBTQ+ communities and their allies across the planet.

Find out more about what we're doing to mark Pride at Kent and how we are working to create a diverse and inclusive culture for everyone.

Pride Canterbury

We are proud to sponsor this year's Pride Canterbury event, taking place on Saturday 11 June 2022.

Our LGBTQ+ Staff Network invites you to come along and join the parade through Canterbury High Street, followed by live entertainment with food and drink in the Dane John Gardens. 

Quotation

I aspire for Kent to keep pushing the boundaries in terms of EDI practice and ensuring that this is fully embedded as part of our “business as usual."

Bob Mckay, Staff LGBTQ+ Network Co-Chair

We want to hear from you!

Throughout Pride Month we will be sharing reflections from staff on why they wear our rainbow lanyards and what they mean to them.
