Kaleidoscope is running the first ever LGBT+ Pride event on campus this Pride Month, on Friday 5 June!
The event is open to all staff and students, those who are members of the LGBT+ community, allies and friends. Running from 4pm-7pm at the lake amphitheatre, we will have a fun afternoon of performances and stalls celebrating the LGBT+ community.
The event will be free, but just so we can get an idea of numbers please register your interest via Eventbrite here.
Pride is still important, as far as we have come in 2020 we can not get complacent. Transgender identity hate crimes increased by 37% to 2,333 in 2018. The Home Office figures also recorded a 25% rise in offences linked to sexual orientation (14,491).
We are looking for performers to take part in the event so if you are a singer, dancer, comedian or anything else and would like to perform at the Pride event please do get in touch with Sophie on email@example.com!
We look forward to seeing you all there!
