The Wales and South West region are looking to send a delegation to London Pride on Saturday 27th June. This year’s event marks the thirtieth Anniversary where in 1985 – South Wales NUM supported the Gay Pride event in London by march with the colliery brass bands in solidarity of Gay rights, in gratitude to the Lesbian and Gay Support the Miners (LGSM)
The LGSM was an alliance of Gay men and Women who came together to support the striking British miners during the year-long UK Miners strike of 1984-85.
I would be grateful if you could encourage branch activists and members to come along and support this historical event. if you are able to attend and any other GMB member who would be interested in coming along please contact us so that we can pass on your details.
It is important that individuals who put their names forward ensure they turn up on the day as transport will be arranged in accordance to numbers.
