Wokingham Conservatives are supporting the Wokingham Pride and have put rainbow flags in their Rose Street office window in support of the LGBTQ+ Pride to demonstrate their support and to celebrate the contributions of LGBT people to national life and to acknowledge the incredible achievements of generations of campaigners who have achieved so much.
Due to their efforts, the United Kingdom is one the most vibrant, diverse and tolerant countries in the world. It is an important month, too, for the Conservative family, as we honour the contributions of our LGBT staff, members, councillors and parliamentarians who have made this Party their home. In the last General Election, the United Kingdom elected more LGBT Conservative MPs than any other party, in the most LGBT parliament in the world, and we could not be more proud.
In previous years Wokingham Conservatives have joined other Berkshire Conservative Associations at the Reading Pride festival and parade.
"We were really looking forward to joining the celebrations planned for Wokingham this year to bring friends, family and communities around us together in friendship and love but Covid has forced cancellation of these," said David Edmonds the local Association Chairman. "Freedom lies at the heart of our Party’s values and we will always stand up for the rights of LGBT people to live and love without fear."
