Photos from Leeds Pride 2019

We’ve had some great photos back from the recent Leeds Pride 2019 event, featuring some of our LGBT+ Staff Network, Role Models and Allies in the University of Leeds Pride t-shirts which we organised for this year’s celebrations!

University of Leeds partnered with Building Equality again this year to appear in the Pride parade, alongside the fabulous Rainbow Digger, with some of our staff members serving as Wheel Marshals. You can find the photos below.

We’re already looking forward to Leeds Pride 2020!

We would like to take the opportunity to say a big thank you to Building Equality, the LGBT+ Staff Network, PCB (for the amazing t-shirt and sticker design!) and everyone else who contributed to our involvement in this year’s Pride, as well as the staff and students who attended and represented the University at such a great event.

We hope to have an independent University of Leeds entry in the parade next year, to keep building on our work to proudly support our LGBT+ staff and students – keep checking back to find out about our other LGBT+ related events in the new academic year!
