On Saturday 2nd July, members of Surrey FA staff marched as part of the FA parade group in celebration of the London Pride parade.
London Pride is the UK’s biggest and most diverse pride and is home to every part of London’s LGBTQ+ community. It comes at the end of the Pride month of Action which saw the celebration of how far LGBTQ+ rights have progressed but also observing and challenging where improvements need to be made.
The Parade kicked off at Hyde Park Corner, before continuing down Piccadilly, taking in the sights of Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square and culminating at Whitehall Place.
This years London Pride, hosted by BT, focused on #AllOurPride, which commemorated the 50th anniversary of the original march in the UK by uniting the collective past, present, and future of pride from every corner of the community and statement of our shared experiences.
Our Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Officer, Eve Roberts was in attendance on behalf of Surrey FA and had the following to say:
"It was a wonderful experience being involved in the event and representing Surrey FA, we are fully in support of LGBTQ+ rights and will continue to celebrate and support all communities in the work we do across our county."
