Celebrate with Pride

Councillors and members of Ealing Council staff came together to celebrate the start of Pride month and the raising of the Progress Pride flag by the Mayor of Ealing, Councillor Hitesh Tailor and council leader, Councillor Peter Mason.  

The month culminates in the London Pride March on 1 July, and for the first time, Ealing Council will have a presence at the march, thanks to the efforts of the council’s LGBTQ+ staff equalities group. 

Rainbow

50 staff and councillors will join the march carrying roundels that will show Ealing’s logo in rainbow colours and the borough motto, which will be adapted for the occasion so that it reads: “Progress with Unity, Diversity and Pride” in support of the borough’s LGBTQ+ community. 

“The struggle for equality is at the heart of Pride. As well as celebrating our LGBTQ+ friends, colleagues and neighbours this Pride month, we also stand in solidarity with them, in the knowledge that we can’t afford to be complacent. We want to create and support an Ealing where no matter who you are you can lead a happy, healthy, safe and fulfilled life.” said Councillor Peter Mason.

Representing Ealing

“It’s really exciting that Ealing will be represented at the Pride march in London this year, and I want to thank the council’s LGBTQ+ equalities group for arranging that, and for all of the work they do behind the scenes to support our LGBTQ+ colleagues, and helping us make Ealing a more open and inclusive council.”

The chair of the council’s LGBTQ+ equalities group, Peter Matthews, said: “The council has a diverse workforce that serves a diverse community and the opportunity to celebrate this diversity under an Ealing Council banner at the London Pride march for the very first time, is very exciting.”
