CCCq @ London Pride
On Saturday 25th of June, members of CCCq, together with friends and partners, took part in the London Pride Parade. The weather favoured us with only one short drizzle of rain, and everyone was in great mood, excited and proud to represent Canterbury Christ Church University. There was a lot of standing around to begin with as the 40,000 strong parade got organised, but that gave us time to get to our banner up and take a group shot!
Once we got moving, the atmosphere and the support from the crowd was fantastic. There were a few excited cheers for us as well, from people with some connection to CCCU – some students watching the Parade clearly recognised their university and were excited to see it represented. There were also several messages of support for the Orlando victims, both in the Parade and among the public, underlying the continued importance of LGBT+ dedicated Prides and other events.
Here are a few more pictures from the day to give you a flavour of the event. Hopefully next year you can join us! To find out more about CCCq events and how to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
