Mark Tami MP said;

“Equality is such an important issue and there is no place in today’s society for discrimination of any kind. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“That is why events like Pride are so important. They give us the opportunity to come together and challenge the prejudice that unfortunately does still exist in today’s society. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“It was great to see so many people here all committed to working towards a more diverse and inclusive society.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
