Pride 2017

Pride 2017 - Come join us!

Pride 2017CILEx members will once again be joining solicitors, barristers and colleagues in London and Cardiff to celebrate Pride with the LGBT+ community. Pride is an opportunity to celebrate an open and accepting legal profession. 

Come join the parade and do your part to demonstrate our determination as a profession to do all we can to achieve full equality by marching under the banner of “all are equal under the law”.

The theme for the 2017 Pride in London campaign is ‘Love Happens Here”. Marking 50 years since Parliament first voted to legalise homosexuality in the UK, Pride in London will be marching with a message of hope, acceptance, activism and love. This year, Pride in London is asking each and every one of us to show the world that London is open, and that Love Happens Here.

Pride Cymru’s Parade returns to the streets of Cardiff in 2017 and will present homage to the 50th anniversary of the passing of the Sexual Offences Act in July 1967, which partially decriminalised homosexuality in England and Wales. The theme of the parade this year will be “Icons and legends” – be that of the LGBT community, the capital or even Wales.

We encourage you to share your pictures and stories on social media using #LegalPride
