Full of Pride

Leeds Pride

03 / 8 / 2015 2.29pm

NHS Employers joined Leeds’ ninth annual Pride celebration of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community for the third year running.

Pride is one of the most colourful celebrations in the Leeds calendar, and colleagues from across the NHS joined in the biggest parade yet, waving their flags of diversity, from our open-top rainbow bus. 

We were proud to be joined by representatives from Lincolnshire NHS trusts, Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust, Leeds Teaching Hospital and Leeds Community Health to name a few! We also ventured into the crowds, handing out balloons, filming short clips and taking pictures with the public and asking, what does Pride mean to you?

Paul Deemer, NHS Employers head of equality, diversity and human rights, said: “Leeds Pride is an event that colleagues across the NHS look forward to each year, and this was the biggest event so far. The team did a fantastic job celebrating diversity and acceptance in the parade, and the response from the crowds for the visible support from the NHS was fantastic.” 

You can watch all of the short clips and view pictures from the day, or read a first hand experience in NHS Employer's Senior Communications Officer, Lizzie Marlow's blog post. If you were there on the day, are yet to upload your pictures, or just want to see what happened, then make sure you use our two hashtags #LeedsPride and #proudintheNHS
