Backing Leeds & Wakefield Pride

I hope everyone who took part in the 8th Leeds Pride on Sunday had a great time. I’m told Sophie Ellis-Bexter was a big hit, despite the torrential rain. I’m sure this weekend’s Wakefield Pride will be just as successful.

These annual events are a fantastic celebration for the LGBT communities here in Leeds and Wakefield. And this year there’s even more cause for celebration. The right for same-sex couples in England and Wales to get married received Royal Assent on 17th July, although the first weddings won’t be until next year.

Congratulations to all the supporters of the Out4Marriage campaign who helped make it happen.
