Cumbria Pride is the original and biggest LGBT+ event in the county and attracts sponsors, volunteers and visitors from all over Cumbria and the wider North West region. This year the event is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
The event takes place in Carlisle on Saturday 28 September 2019. It includes a parade from the city centre. This is followed by a free event with live music and comedy performances in the grounds of Carlisle Castle.
We are of the main sponsors and will have a stall at the event, hosted by our employees.
Alan Rankin, the equality, diversity and inclusion lead for Sellafield Ltd, said:
As one of the largest employers in the county, we are once again delighted to support Cumbria Pride.
We know from attending last year and the feedback of those involved and who attend that it is an important date in the diary for the LGBT+ community and beyond.
Pam Eland from Cumbria Pride, said:
We thank Sellafield Ltd for continuing to support this important event. Pride is far more than a parade and festival – it is a chance for the LGBT+ community to come together to recognise and celebrate all that we achieve by working with each other.
Cumbria Pride’s aim is to promote equality and diversity for the public benefits and counter discrimination against LGBT people across Cumbria.
It aims to be a strong voice for Cumbria’s LGBT community and provide a safe environment to engage communities in the celebration of their sexual orientation and gender identity.
