Pride 2021

My alt text

Intellect is honoured to support Pride, a month-long time of awareness and action chosen to coincide with the anniversary of the Stonewall uprising. 

Pride is a protest. It’s a celebration and commemoration of the work of all who have come before us in the fight against discrimination. In particular we recognise trans people of colour, who were not only instrumental in Stonewall and LGBTQ+ activism, but are also disproportionately subjected to violence and erasure. Pride is a moment to acknowledge how far we have to go to gain equality for LGBTQ+ people, as well as to uplift the wonderful work that is being done right now. 

To find Pride events in your area, check the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association’s calendar here:  

Intellect is working to create an inclusive and diverse space for all our authors, editors and readers, and we are proud of all of our content and contributors that reflect this. Thank you.
