Ravi Reacts – Celebrating Pride Month

Pride Month officially drew to a close earlier this week, but the coronavirus pandemic meant that members of the LGBTQ+ community have had to celebrate Pride differently this year, with virtual events and festivities replacing the usual parades and street parities.

As ongoing protests for civil rights continue around the world, many Pride events focused on supporting the Black Lives Matter Movement, in addition to celebrating of the LGBTQ+ community.

Reacting to the news, Ravi Bains said:

“I would like to send my best wishes to the LGBTQ+ community, and hope they were able to enjoy a happy Pride month this year, despite it not being the usual celebration they deserve.

“I was particularly inspired to see the community rally behind the Black Lives Matter movement in spirit of the history of Pride, which is of course rooted in protest.

“I have always taken my responsibility as an employer to create an inclusive work environment where people are free to be themselves incredibly seriously, and I am so proud to work alongside so many brilliant LGBTQ+ colleagues.”
