GMB Proud To Support Leeds Pride - Sunday 5th August 2012

4 Aug 2012

Once again Leeds Pride is upon us, a major event in our Region celebrating equality and inclusion. GMB is proud to be involved again this year, and are expecting a bigger presence than last year. Having an open top bus in the main parade, with key activists sporting orange tutu’s and original tops commissioned for the event, to ensure they fit in with the glitz and glam of the colourful parade.

GMB are also pleased to have secured a stall on Lower Briggate, which will be filled with merchandise to fit the day. One of the organisers of the GMB presence, at the pride event Branch Secretary Neil Cole, said “GMB continues to drive equality in the workplace and community, keeping it high on the agenda. It is scandalous that discrimination continues in this day and age, we continue to represent many of our members who encounter such discrimination and will continue to do so until it is fully stamped out, it has no place within our society”.

GMB represents 62,000 members within the Yorkshire Region, in both Public and Private sectors, having a strong base of members and activists within Leeds. Of which many will be attending the event to rally for fairness and equality.
