We are proud to represent as allies and to present our first edition of our news-letter. It is important to us that all of our colleagues and employees feel safe working with us. Happy Pride - month to everyone!

Without gay pride events, it is very likely that anyone in the LGBTQ+ community would continue to be

oppressed by government and society even today. Prior to the push for the liberation of gay rights, all

lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-gender people were discriminated against and disregarded by the rest

of the world. The influence of LGBTQ+ activism has grown and within the past ten years , there has been significant legal progress worldwide. Changes have taken affect very gradually, how-ever, in the United States, there are finally federal laws that protect and prohibit employment discrimination

against gay and transgender employees. Meanwhile in the UK, the Equality Act 2010 gave LGBT employees protection from discrimination, harassment and victimisation at work.


None should be discriminated against at work. There are still places where employees feel pressured to keep their identities secret to avoid facing consequences at work.

The history of gay pride originates from the initial protests that took place in New York City. The catalyst for these protests was the response to a police raid of the Stonewall Inn found in Greenwich Village

on June 28, 1969. Each subsequent Pride march or event is dedicated to celebrating those that

retaliated against the police in pursuit of gay rights, in what was know as the Stonewall riots.
