Stonewall, the campaign group for lesbian, gay and bisexual rights, has become a main sponsor of UK Black Pride 2010, the biggest celebration of African, Asian, Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Latin American LGBT people and friends in Britain on Saturday 14 August.
Stonewall has spent 21 years fighting for the rights of LGB people. From equalising the age of consent; to repealing Section 28; from civil partnerships rights, to enabling same-sex couples to adopt, Stonewall has a proud record of lobbying and winning.
Ben Summerskill, Stonewall Chief Executive said: “Stonewall is proud to stand up for all lesbian, gay and bisexual people no matter what their ethnicity or nationality.
That is evident in the work we do, and it’s why we're proud to back UK Black Pride as a main sponsor. UK Black Pride shows the power of communities coming together to celebrate diversity. Stonewall encourages everyone to attend the festival."
Phyllis Opoku-Gyimah, UK Black Pride Director said: “I’m thrilled that Stonewall has formalised its long standing support for our community-led initiative. The help they have gifted us will help to ensure that we put on a strong event that gives space to non-white LGBT people to showcase the best of who we are, as we see ourselves, rather than how others choose to portray us. Of course, UK Black Pride has always been an inclusive and everyone is welcome to join this celebration!”
The theme of this year’s UK Black Pride event is: ‘Pride, A Deeper Love’ and will take place on Saturday 14 August in the beautiful Regents Park, London. Tickets are on sale now and can be bought from the website: www.ukblackpride.org.uk
Alongside the main stage and dance tents there will be licensed bars, world food, a VIP tent, Secret Garden, chill out zone and games area, as well as education and welfare workshops, community stalls, children’s area and much more.
UK Black Pride puts pride before profit for Black LGBT peoples’ involvement through sponsorship and support from wide range of community organisations. We’ll repeat this and more on 14 August, so prepare for UK Black Pride: A Deeper Love!
