At Gerald Eve, we believe in celebrating diversity and fostering an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome and valued for who they are.
This Pride month, our LGBTQ+ network, EncouraGE, co-founded by Richard Glenwright and Liam Lawson Jones, are focusing in on the history of the LGBTQ+ community and how all can be involved in integrating the values of Pride across the property industry.
Pride Month is a time for us to honour and support the LGBTQ+ community and recognize their contributions to society. We invite you to join us in commemorating this important month of celebration and advocacy. It is also a time to recognise the challenges that many in the LGBTQ+ community face at home and abroad.
Pride Month is an annual observance celebrated in June to honour the LGBTQ+ community and promote equal rights, diversity, and self-affirmation. It commemorates the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York City, a pivotal moment in the LGBTQ+ rights movement. Throughout the month, various events, parades, and activities take place worldwide to promote visibility, acceptance, and unity.
Pride was once a protest, not a party.
Pride Month is a reminder of the progress we have made and the work that still lies ahead. By celebrating Pride, we show our solidarity, love, and commitment to creating an environment where everyone can live authentically and without fear of discrimination.
At EncouraGE, we want you to embrace your true self and stand together with our LGBTQ+ colleagues, friends, and family members. Let’s make Pride Month a time of joy, reflection, and advocacy for a more inclusive future.
Happy Pride Month from EncouraGE!
