This week (24-29 August 2020), people across Wales will be coming together for Pride Cymru, the annual celebration of LGBT+ inclusivity and diversity.
In previous years, we here at Swansea Bay University Health Board have proudly joined our NHS LGBT+ colleagues and allies to support Pride and this year we are doing the same. However, while Pride is usually marked in Wales with lots of different events, including a parade through Cardiff, this year things are being done a little differently.
To keep everyone safe from COVID-19, Pride has moved online, and we’re joining organisations across Wales to celebrate NHS Wales Virtual Pride 2020 with a week of online activities.
On Monday, we will be sharing photos of our colleagues at Pride parades of years gone by and there are a whole host of other activities that you can get involved in too – from discussion sessions to quiz nights, film festivals and more. Follow this link to read through the full schedule.
Keep an eye on the celebrations by following our social media pages (@SwanseaBayNHS on Twitter and ‘Swansea Bay NHS’ on Facebook) and join in the celebration yourself by tagging us and using the hashtags #NHSWALESPRIDE and #PRIDEGIGCYMRU.
