June is Pride Month
03 June 2021
June is Pride Month in the UK, the first official London Pride event was held in 1972. Each Pride month across the UK is different. In past years some Pride events have attracted large numbers of people and others have been smaller and more focused on the local community. However, every Pride strives to have a positive atmosphere and feel inclusive to all attendees.
The six colours used in the rainbow pride flag represent different aspects of LGBTQ+ communities and is also a symbolic representation of the variety of human expression, in all its hues and shades.
Here at ARU we are committed to providing an environment that values diversity and promotes equality and inclusion, aiming to provide a supportive environment in which to work and study. ARU Library focuses on the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community through our website and LGBTQ+ collections and Box of Broadcasts playlist.
