🏳️‍🌈Bristol Pride Parade 2022

City and Foundation staff march alongside the Bristol City Panthers at Bristol’s annual Pride Parade

Saturday the 9th of July marked the 50th Anniversary of the Bristol Pride Parade which celebrates the LGBTQ+ community and offers the chance to connect and bring people together.

Bristol City and Robins Foundation staff gathered in the City centre with the Bristol City Panther to join in with the celebrations. 

💬 Panthers Chairman Robert Hall said: "It's fantastic knowing how big the representation is in the City and how far the LGBTQ+ community has come. 

Pride is the one time of the year where as LGBTQ+ people we get to be visible and in the majority of the City when we are usually a minoirty. You get to see all members of the community all in one place. 

This is why it's so important to be here with the Foundation and the club because it signifies to everyone that Bristol City is truly a club where everyone is welcome." 



💬 Bristol City Supporters Club & Trust board member, Shahan Miah said, "It's great as always to represent the Supporters Club & Trust, and am proud to have marched alongside the Bristol City Panthers and the Robins Foundation on Pride Day. 

Pride is very important as while attitudes and progression have indeed been made, unfortunately, there are still injustices in the UK and abroad that are affecting the LGBTQIA+ community, and we all need to keep protesting; whether we're part of that community or an ally; to ensure that they stop.
These events give people the opportunity to come together and celebrate who they are and it’s been great to be part of."
