Motion text

That this House welcomes Pride Month 2022, running from 1st to 30th June; understands Pride is a month-long celebration of the establishment of the LGBTQIA+ rights movement that followed the Stonewall riots in New York in 1969; recognises this year marks 50 years of the Pride movement in the UK, following the first official UK Gay Pride Rally held in London on 1 July 1972; understands that Pride is a celebration of the successes of the diverse LGBTQIA+ community while raising awareness of continuing discrimination and issues affecting the members of the community; commends the progress that modern society has made in protecting the rights of those with LGBTQIA+ identities; further understands that this recent progress for the LGBTQIA+ community comes after decades of campaigning in civic society; celebrates the freedoms gained by LGBTQIA+ people including recognised rights to marriage, adoption and family life as well as acceptance in mainstream society; and recognises that although significant progress has been made, more can be done to make the UK a safer and fairer place for the LGBTQIA+ community and to spread that message of tolerance and acceptance throughout the world.
