This year LAGIP will be teaming up with GALIPS, the Prison LGB&T staff network at four predie events: Newcastle, Cardiff, Brighton and Manchester Pride. LAGIP Chair, Margaret Sinclair, tells Napo News ‘it would be great to have Napo members join us on the parade. I cannot guarantee that the sun will shine, but I can guarantee a fun day. (If it rains – we will have another rainbow).’
The four events are:
- Fri 17 – Sun 19 July: Northern Pride (Newcastle upon Tyne)
- Sat 1 August: Brighton Pride
- Sat 15 August: Pride Cymru (Cardiff)
- Fri 28 – Mon 31 August: Manchester Pride
To date other events being represented include West Yorkshire and Norfolk and Suffolk. Details below :
- West Yorkshire CRC are having a stall at Leeds Pride and Wakefield Pride – they have agreed TOIL for staff attending (agreed by the Exec team) and purchased a banner and some goodies to give away. Staffing will be a mix of LGBT and straight staff – they are working with their network group Out for Justice.Anyone from West Yorkshire area who wants to help can let the Diversity and Development admin team know via their mailbox: firstname.lastname@example.org
