We are proud to be supporters and sponsors of Channel Islands Pride.
Why we support Pride
We see all people in our communities as equal. Whether you are a colleague, member or just someone popping to our stores, we celebrate not only the diversity of our communities but what brings us together.
It shouldn’t matter whether we are straight, lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender or questioning - we should all be recognised for who we are as a person.
No-one should feel marginalised or open to abuse because of ‘who’ they are, who they love or how they identify.
This is why events such as Pride are so important. It promotes awareness of the inequalities faced by LGBTQ+ people and it provides a safe haven for people to be who they really are, and for the wider community to embrace that and find out a little more about LGBTQ+ people.
We have seen the amazing changes we make when we unite. We can inspire future generations to talk openly and honestly about how they feel, without fear of prejudice. Together, we make a difference.
In 2019, we supported Le Rocquier School to bring a pride-themed mural to Grand Marché St Helier. Watch the video:
