Supporting Prides in 2023

UNISON South East is proudly sponsoring a number of Prides across the region in 2023, including Canterbury, Dover and Hastings.

The UNISON South East LGBT+ self-organised group (SOG) is pleased to be an official sponsor of the following Prides this Summer:

Canterbury Pride Sat 10 June
Brighton Trans Pride Sat 15 July
New Forest Pride Sat 19 August
Dover Pride Sat 26 August
Hastings Pride Sun 27 August

We will be out in numbers at each of these events, so please come and join us if you can.

If you would like to get involved, support our work, and join UNISON at any of the above events, please email UNISON South East regional organiser Michael Etheridge for more details.
