Take Pride - Stand up for LGBTQ+ rights

More than 7 in 10* British people support the LGBTQ+ community. This summer, take action by showing you stand with us.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first Pride march in the UK – a day when hundreds of LGBTQ+ people and their allies arrived in London to protest a society where we were not safe to be ourselves.

These brave protesters marched to Trafalgar Square despite fearing for their own safety. But they knew it was important that their voices were heard – and their actions that day paved the way for half a century of progressive societal change for LGBTQ+ people. 

We have come so far since then.

50 years on, we can take pride in a United Kingdom where the majority of the public are supportive of their LGBTQ+ neighbours, work colleagues, family and friends.

Today, we live in a society where LGBTQ+ people can live openly and free, where we can form our own families and where our lives and history are taught in schools to the next generation. 

But our hard-won rights are at risk.

However, we can’t take progress for granted. Throughout the past 50 years, the LGBTQ+ community has withstood numerous smear campaigns from those who wish to push us back into hiding. 

These attacks continue today – with a noisy minority pushing intolerant rhetoric in our media and our politics. Without action, we are heading down the same path as countries such as the US, Hungary and Poland. 

Will you take meaningful action to help?

We know that rollbacks on LGBTQ+ rights go against the will of the people. 

So this summer, we’re calling on the majority to Take Pride in supporting LGBTQ+ rights, and to take meaningful actions to show the leaders of the UK, Scotland and Wales governments that we want to live in a world where no one is discriminated because of who they are or who they love.
