Update Pride 2012

02 July 2012

Due to funding and licensing issues the pride organisers informed us on 30th June that the event would be changed to a walking only parade. Unfortunately this only gave 8 days’ notice of the change, so all equipment and services ASLEF required for the event had already been paid for. We are currently in the process of trying to recoup these outgoings but at this stage it looks unlikely that we will be able to do this.


The LGBT Representative Committee are obviously disheartened with this announcement and the poor way the matter has been dealt with by the organisers. As such they have made the decision to withdraw from the event completely this year.

We would like to thank all of the districts, branches and individual members who have offered their support to the committee with this endeavour.
