We joined forces with InterMedia UK – the LGBT network for media professionals to celebrate this year’s Pride event in London. Our own Pride network, ITV Pride joined more than 100 colleagues from across the creative media sector in a walking group under the InterMedia banner to celebrate and support London’s wider LGBT community.
Some of our very own #PrideHeroes from The Only Way is Essex, This Morning, Coronation Street and Emmerdale joined the parade which passed through the heart of London, from Baker Street, along iconic Oxford Street and finishing at Trafalgar Square.
Throughout the day event people were encouraged to show their support and join in the celebration of diversity and equality over social media using #FreedomTo.
We’re really excited about this weekend in London, but it doesn’t stop there as ITV LGBT colleagues and supporters are also planning a fantastic weekend at Manchester Pride celebrations on Saturday 29th August…making this a real integrated ITV colleagues event. Matt Scarff, Director of ITV Creative and Events and Chair of the ITV Pride Network
