Kirklees Pride

We are so proud to be supporting Kirklees Pride 2022 and are looking forward to what is going to be a fantastic celebration on Sat 9 July.

Pride is a celebration of people coming together in love and friendship, to show how far LGBTQ+ rights have come and how in some places there is still work to be done. It's about being proud of who you are, no matter who you love.
