QMOUT at PRIDE
11 July 2018
London Pride Parade 2018
This year's UK Pride celebrations mark 50 years since the partial decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK, and 3 years since the legalisaton of same-sex marriage in the UK, ensuring that same-sex couples benefit from the same legal rights as straight ones.
Members of QMOUT, QMUL's LGBT+ staff network, participated in celebrations held across the city marking 46 years of Pride celebrations in the capital, as well taking part in events across the country throughout Pride Month (June).
Pride marches and events have been held internationally for almost 50 years, with the first Pride march held in Chicago (1970) in commemoration of the Stonewall riots (1969). Pride events are now hosted across the globe to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues, campaign for LGBT+ rights, and celebrate the LGBT+ community.
