From 24-28 August, Building Equality is inviting everyone to the Alternative Manchester Pride Festival, the largest show of virtual LGBT+ inclusion the industry has ever seen. As a member organisation, we are proud at WYG to celebrate alongside the largest alliance of UK-wide construction, engineering, and built environment organisations promoting, celebrating, and facilitating LGBT+ inclusion.
Over the last five years, Building Equality and its member organisations have come together to celebrate pride in cities across the UK. Although physical Pride events may be cancelled this year, Pride itself certainly isn't.
Building Equality is hosting the festival to showcase our community through online webinars, exclusive author readings, vigils, positive speakers and competitions, all highlighting the experiences of LGBT+ individuals. The festival is open to all, including LGBT+ and allies, Building Equality members and otherwise.
Feature Meet the Members sessions, the festival invite Building Equality members' LGBT+ Network Executive Sponsors to explore, inform, and shout about the great things they are doing to progress LGBT+ inclusion in their organisation and industry.
The festival will showcase the accessibility of our industry to LGBT+ individuals and other minority groups. Together, Buidling Equality's members seek to shift the industry culture and build more inclusive and understanding working environments through highlighting progress, celebrating our differences, and empowering others to become allies to inclusion.
