European Central Bank breaks new ground as delegation joins Pride in London Parade

European Central Bank breaks new ground as delegation joins Pride in London Parade

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan was at the event and it was also the first time uniformed officers from the Royal Marines took part in the parade.

It is estimated over one million people will take to the streets and approximately 30,000 people and 472 organisations will join the annual parade, which is one of the world's biggest LGBT+ celebrations.

European Central Bank employees will march alongside colleagues from principal partner NatWest and the #NoBoundaries campaign as well as six representatives of cricket clubs from across the country.

A recent survey by Pride in London found Britons care more about animal rights than LGBT rights. The main reasons expressed were unease in the dressing room environment and the homophobic language which can still occasionally be heard.

Ms Camps said the event is taking place at a time LGBT rights issues were more important than ever as the United Kingdom is "falling down the rankings in terms of the best place to be LGBT".

We're hugely proud to be taking part in Pride in London, it demonstrates our continued commitment to making European Central Bank and cricket in general as welcome and accessible as possible.

Back in 2012, as part of the government's Sport Charter to tackle homophobia and transphobia in sport, a number of sporting national governing bodies - led by the RFL and including the European Central Bank - did march together in London's Pride parade as part of a Government-led campaign, but previously no governing body has taken part as an individual organisation.

Groups taking part in the parade include Mosaic LGBT Youth Centre; Xtend, a support group for gay parents; and Educate & Celebrate, which aims to make schools LGBT-friendly places.
