Wolverhampton and Black Country Pride 2012

This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the 1st gay pride held in July 1972 in Britain- led by the Gay Liberation Front (GLF).
In this highly symbolic year, the city hosted  its 1st Wolverhampton and Black Country Pride on 29 July 2012 (organised by the LGBT Network Wolverhampton) and we had Peter Tatchell, who was a member of the GLF marching with us.
It was amazing to see staff and students working together on this exceptional day. The  Student LGBT + Society , the Staff Network of the University of Wolverhampton , and  our straight allies marched together in solidarity to celebrate Pride as well as to demand equality.
It was wonderful to have had the support of a number of city councillors, the Registrar of the University, Helen Lloyd Wildman, and the two Wolverhampton MPs – Pat McFadden and Emma Reynolds.  Thanks everyone for making this event a success.
