Pride Month 2021

June is celebrated as Pride Month, a month-long celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and non-binary history, including the history of LGBTQ+ rights and related civil rights movements. It commemorates the Stonewall riots, which began in June 1969.

Throughout June, there will be a range of activities happening across the School for both staff and students. In recent years, Pride Month and Spectrum’s Pride activities have coincided with Pride in London, but this has been moved to September this year due to the ongoing pandemic. We hope to provide an update on our participation at Pride in London in the near future.

Please check out our recently updated LGBTQ+ Role Models and Allies Directory, and you can also now find a range of dedicated LGBTQ+ resources available on the EDI webpages. We would like to encourage more people to think of themselves as role models and allies, and to use the directory and resources for real life inspiration.
