LGBT

During Pride month, logos around the world change to stand in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community.

Our Pride logo and Wellcome staff at Pride in London in 2019.

Logos are a mark of distinction  they are also emblematic of an organisation’s values and beliefs.

At Wellcome, the Pride logo represents the changes we want to see in how we operate as a funder and employer, and the changes we want to see in research culture and the wider science and research sector. We're proud that many Wellcome-funded centres are changing their logos too.

We’ve changed our logo on our social channels and on our homepage banner based on the Pride flag design by Daniel Quasar(opens in a new tab). It builds on the usual Pride flag by adding stripes that emphasise groups within the LGBTQ+ community that often experience marginalisation.

This includes:

  • trans and non-binary people  represented by the white, light pink and light blue stripes
  • LGBTQ+ people of colour  represented by the brown and black stripes
  • people living with AIDS and those who have died from it  represented by the black stripe.
