Celebrating LGBTQ+ identity and inclusion in Canterbury

Posted on 12 June 2023

We are proud to have been a sponsor of Canterbury Pride this year. The event, which took place last weekend on Saturday 10 June and Sunday 11 June, drew thousands of people together for huge celebration of LGBTQ+ identity and inclusion.

Emmy Stock, Chair of PRYDE our LGBTQ+ staff network group, said: "I'm thrilled that Hyde have sponsored Canterbury Pride. In doing so we are playing a key role in helping create an inclusive society. By supporting events like Pride Month and partnering with local organisations, we have the opportunity to champion diversity and foster environments that celebrate the uniqueness of all individuals.”

Throughout the weekend, attendees were treated to an exciting line-up of live performances, including musical acts, dance performances, drag shows and speakers. In addition, local LGBTQ+ organisations and support groups set up booths, providing a wealth of information on support for the LGBTQ+ community.
