The theme for this year was #PrideJubilee, honouring 50 years of activism, protests and victories that have made the movement what it is today.
All over the country, during June and July this year, Pride flags were flown and parades took place to continue to fight for equality and to challenge prejudice.
IVC were honoured to sponsor the BVLGBT+ march in this year’s London Pride. Amelia Reynolds practice manager at Boness Vets attended to march alongside the BVLGBT+ and to show IVC’s support for the LGBT+ community.
‘It was a privilege and honour to march with BVLGBT+, an amazing group of people. I was proud to represent my community, my profession and my company.
She went on to say,
“Marching in pride isn’t about you, it’s about those who haven’t made it that far yet. It’s about taking stock of all that has been achieved and how far the LGBT+ community has come but also how far there still is to go. It’s about being inspired and inspiring others. Above all else it is about love and equality.”
IVC has joined the fight and promises to:
- Continue promoting their passion for equality and diversity within IVC and the veterinary industry
- Become a recognised LGBT+ employer
- Give support to the LGBT+ community within the company
- Celebrate equality and diversity
