Pride in our diversity
Britain's Armed Forces marched together for the first time at London Pride last year - this year on 3 August, we're celebrating our diversity and inclusiveness at Brighton Pride, home to our first centre and one of the country's most popular Pride events.
"We show support and celebration for the diverse parts that make up the Blind Veterans UK family."Chief Executive Nick Caplin
Blind Veterans UK Chief Executive, Major General (rtd) Nick Caplin CB shared his pride in our diversity, saying, 'Our participation goes further than simple tolerance, as we show support and celebration for the diverse parts that make up the Blind Veterans UK family." Our team of staff, volunteers and members will be up to 50 strong as we join our friends at the Royal British Legion to represent the ex-service community on August 3, in Brighton.
This Pride marks 19 years since the ban was lifted on gay, lesbian and bisexual people from serving in the British Armed Forces, and we want to show that everyone who serves, or is part of our charity, no matter what their sexual orientation or gender identity, has the right to be treated fairly and with dignity and respect.
Join the Blind Veterans UK team on 3 August as we celebrate together.
