Pride season has begun and there are a number of upcoming Pride events that you can get involved in, across the country in the coming months. Pride is a celebration of the progression of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) rights, however, there is still a long way to go before everyone in the LGBT community feels accepted without exception. In order to work towards this goal, 2017 will be a year, with more Pride celebrations across the UK than ever before!
