Give Me Celebrates Pride month

Here at Give Me, we are all about Filter Free Confidence, but we are also about equality, love, and promoting self-care for all. This Pride Month, we want to celebrate everyone in the LGBTQ+ community, from creators we work with, members of our team, and all our customers!

The Journey of Pride: A Look Back

Looking back on the history of Pride, we have come so far. The UK and the rest of the world have faced controversies and discrimination, which has thankfully become a thing of the past. The first Pride march in the UK took place in 1972 in London, with only 2,000 attendees. This was a ground-breaking event that laid the foundation for future celebrations and the fight for LGBTQ+ rights.

Liverpool celebrated their first Pride in 2010 with a city-wide celebration and over 20,000 attendees. This party has grown, and this year it will be celebrated on July 27, 2024 . Events like these show how Pride has evolved from a small protest to a large-scale celebration of identity and freedom.

Pride in the UK: Then and Now

Pride events in the UK have become grander and more inclusive over the years. From small marches to large parades, the essence of Pride remains the same: to honour the LGBTQ+ community's struggle for equality and to celebrate love in all its forms. Major cities like London, Manchester, and Brighton host some of the largest Pride events, drawing crowds from all over the world. These events are not just parades but vibrant festivals with music, art, and cultural performances that celebrate the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community.

The UK's commitment to LGBTQ+ rights has seen significant advancements, including the legalization of same-sex marriage in 2014 and increased protections against discrimination. However, it's essential to remember that the journey towards equality is ongoing, and Pride Month serves as a reminder of the work that still needs to be done.
