A proud glow up to celebrate Pride month

Today, the council proudly raises the rainbow Pride flag on its Perceval House building to mark the start of Pride month.

And have you noticed that Ealing Council’s logo looks a little different too?

On social media channels and digital billboards across the borough you will see the colourful alternative logo with the council’s motto amended to represent its mission to progress not just with unity, but diversity and pride.

Love and friendship

Pride month in June is dedicated to celebrating LGBTQI+ communities all around the world. Pride is a celebration of people coming together in love and friendship, to show how far LGBTQ+ rights have come, and how in some places there’s still work to be done.

“The struggle for equality is at the heart of Pride,” said Peter Matthews and Anna Elliott co-chairs of the council’s LGBTQ+ equalities group. “As well as celebrating our LGBTQ+ friends, colleagues and neighbours this Pride month in Ealing, it’s important that we all stand in solidarity, in the knowledge that we can’t afford to be complacent.

“The council has a diverse workforce that serves a diverse community and the opportunity to celebrate this diversity and the work we do to make Ealing a more open and inclusive council is so important.”

Across the summer there are some fantastic community and music events taking place in the borough including:

Saturday 15 June – 11am–5pm – West London Queer Project’s Pride Picnic at Walpole Park, Mattock Lane, Ealing W5 5EQ.

Sunday 21 July – The As One festival, showcasing some of the brightest up-and-coming musical and artistic stars from the London LGBTQ+ scene across four stages – Walpole Park, Mattock Lane, Ealing W5 5EQ. Tickets £20. Visit the website.
