Last year, Pride events around the country were cancelled completely due to the pandemic. This year, things are really looking up, and while they may be a little different, many events are still going ahead! How are you going to get involved? Let us know in the comments below 👇
There’s something for everyone, from casual meet-ups to online quizzes and drag performances, there’s a massive range of events happening this year! And of course, throughout the summer look out for the Pride parades in your nearest town/city 🤩
Do your bit for the community, be an ally✌
You can do this in a number of ways:
- Bring awareness to societal issues, where you can.
- Give to charities or volunteer your time.
- Supporting businesses that donate to LGBTQ+ causes.
- Wear your rainbow with pride!
Every little helps – while these things can be done all year round, there is even more attention in June! Many companies and small businesses will create specific ranges this month, most of which promise to give back to the community via donation of profits! (Tip: avoid the ones that don’t support charities!)
