PUB PRIDE: Venues shine bright celebrating LGBT+ inclusion

 Published on: 15th June 2022   |   By: Bryn Holmes   |   Category: Uncategorized

The LGBT+ community of St Albans came together on May 27 to celebrate inclusion, diversity and pride.

Taking place from 5:30pm onwards at St Saviour’s Church and organised by local LGBT+ charity Ask for Clive, the annual Pub Pride event aims to work with venues and organisations across the city to promote inclusion and provide welcome spaces for members of the community.

It also endeavours to promote a zero-tolerance attitude towards discrimination. Venues across the city, including the cathedral, were lit up in rainbow colours, along with entertainment such as drag shows.

Speakers at the event included the curate at the church, Father Corniel Quak, co-founders of Ask for Clive, Clive Duffey and Danny Clare and Daisy Cooper, MP for St Albans.

Chair of Herts Police’s LGBT+ Network, Inspector Steve Alison, also attended to give a speech at the event.

Inspector Alison said: “Pub Pride is a fantastic initiative which we fully support. Nobody should be made to feel unsafe because of their sexuality or gender identity and as the police, we will continue doing everything we can to make sure that Hertfordshire is safe for the LGBT+ community.

“We always enjoy attending events like these as it’s great to meet local residents and find out their views. I would like to thank everybody who took the time to speak to us and share their thoughts on what we can do to help keep you safe.”
