A summer of Pride in 2018

LGBT+ colleagues and straight allies celebrating diversity and equality

Pride was celebrated in style this summer by ITV Pride, ITV’s company-wide network of over 120 lesbian, gay, bi, trans and straight ally members, with activities right across the country from London to Leeds, Cardiff to Manchester and Belfast celebrating diversity and inclusion.

Our ITV Pride network colleagues and straight allies started the first wave of celebrations in London. There they joined InterMediaUK, the LGBT+ network group for people working in the media sector, and showed support alongside our peers from Sky, UKTV, Discovery and the BBC.

It felt brilliant to be taking part in London Pride as part of ITV, particularly getting to meet everyone beforehand and mingle. It was good to see how much effort had been made with the little details (the glitter artist was a particular highlight!) and reinforced the impression that the Pride Network is an important one which the company takes seriously.Melissa Wright, On-screen Journalist

The positive change driven by our ITV Pride network is invaluable to us and we are proud that our colleagues have joined the Pride celebrations around the country showing our commitment to inclusiveness.
