Our Progressive Pride

Event details

This event has already taken place.

The Civil Service LGBT+ Network welcomes our members and allies to continue the ongoing discussion on the Progressive Pride flag and how this powerful, international symbol is confronting discrimination in LGBT+ spaces.

Originated by the Co-Chairs of the BEIS LGBT+ Network, Flora Strange and James Foster, David Seivwright and Civil Service LGBT+ Network Vice-Chair, Rikesh Nagamah, they will be providing an insightful history of the journey of the Pride flag. Speakers will also be addressing how the rainbow emblem has been adopted as a symbol of the NHS and what impact this has on our community. We encourage attendees to actively take part in the conversation, offer their views on the flags and share what it represents to them.

Please register through Eventbrite, using your GOV.UK email address. Joining instructions will be sent out prior to the event.
