Celebrating Pride: Equality for all

Throughout many parts of the world Pride parades are light-filled celebrations of our diverse LGBTQIA+ community, but let's not forget they are also an opportunity to continue to drive change. Pride began as – and remains – a march in solidarity. Solidarity to overcome societal and legal marginalization. Solidarity to be able to be ourselves. Solidarity to achieve equality for all.
