Wokingham Borough Council will raise a Rainbow Flag tomorrow, 11 July in support of the LGBTQ+ Pride. The annual event is all about coming together – appreciating friends, family and communities around us in love and friendship, and peacefully rallying against discrimination.
Pride usually bursts with marches, parades and festivities, and whilst these are placed on hold due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the council would still like to urge residents to mark the day. From displaying flags in windows, writing messages of support and sharing empowering images on social media – there are many creative ways to join the celebrations.
“I am honoured to champion the rights of the LGBTQ+ community. Our work with our partners to promote equality and good relations is stronger than ever and I’m proud of the inclusive and diverse borough that Wokingham is. I’d like to take this opportunity to invite you all to share this experience with us online.” said, Cllr Malcolm Richards, Wokingham Borough Mayor.
