Celebrating Pride Month 2021

During Pride Month, we are encouraging everyone to share celebrations and activities using the hashtag #BASWPride21.

Every June, people come together to celebrate Pride Month, a month dedicated to championing LGBTQIA+ communities both in the UK and around the world.

Pride is held in June to mark the anniversary of the Stonewall riots, a series of protests that occurred in New York City after police attempted to raid the Stonewall Inn, a popular gay bar, in June 1969.

BASW wishes everyone a happy, healthy and safe Pride Month 2021!
