Find out about all the exciting and informative events London Met has on offer for Pride Month.
Date: 27 May 2022
This June is Pride Month and London Met has planned a host of events to celebrate. In the lead-up to London Pride Parade on 2 July 2022 there will be barbecues, brunches, film screenings, roundtables and more!
Pride Month is an annual celebration that takes place during the month of June, to mark the anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York, June 1969. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the London Pride Parade, which ended in an afterparty held at London Met’s campus, which is now commemorated with a plaque on the Holloway Road site.
As well as a celebration, Pride presents an opportunity to protest, raise awareness, create discussion, and support people and communities. Pride Month acts as a reminder of how much more still needs to change to ensure that LGBTQIA+ are supported and included. The events are a celebration of diversity as well as recognition of the rights fought for by LGBTQIA+ communities in London, and across the world.
Here are some of the events hosted by the Centre for Equity and Inclusion, that you can take part in this June.
Please be aware that some of the events are exclusively for members of the LGBTQIA+ community due to the historical and contemporary structural exclusion of these groups within and outside of LGBTQIA+ spaces.
