June is Pride Month!

Pride Rainbow Flag

The month of June was chosen for LGBT+ Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. As a result, many pride events are held during this month to recognise the impact LGBT+ people have had in the world.

There are pride festivals taking place throughout the Summer across the South West including:
