Are you going? Leeds Pride will be back bigger than ever this summer image

Leeds Pride, the August 6 celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans life will take in an extended area of the city this year.  Running since 2006, it is now the largest Pride event in the UK to still be completely free. More than 40,000 people are expected to attend over the weekend.

Each year colleagues from West Yorkshire CRC and NPS attend the event as part of our Out for Justice Network.

This year we will be coming together again in celebration of the LGBT Community and we will be marching in Parade at the main event on the Sunday under our Out for Justice banner and as part of the new wider National LGBT network Pride in Prison & Probation (PIPPS).  As always afterwards we will be joining in the celebrations which promise to be bigger than ever!

If you want to be part of the celebrations and get involved please contact Sarah Clark (sarahclark@interservefls.gse.gov.uk).  Friends and family are also welcome!!  The plan for the day will be to meet at The Victoria Hotel, 28 Great George St, LS1 3DL (Behind Town Hall) – collect T-shirts and then at 1.30pm head down to Millennium Square.  The parade starts at 2pm and then we will have time to celebrate and enjoy the festivities.
