On Saturday 7 July the BHF took part in the annual Pride in London Parade for the first time, highlighting our support for our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Queer (LGBTQ+) colleagues, volunteers, supporters, patients, researchers and benefactors.
It is with great pride that the BHF took part this year, not only to demonstrate our continued support and commitment to the LGBTQ+ community but also to promote how our heart and circulatory research is for everyone.
This was a fantastic event, with over 30 BHF colleagues and friends leading the way wearing red and rainbow colours! It was loud, it was noisy, it was spectacular, but above all it was such a pleasure to join more than 500 groups to parade through the capital at this iconic event to celebrate freedom of expression and diversity.
The BHF is a great place to work that values diversity and inclusion and strives to ensure our colleagues, volunteers and customers are treated equally and with respect at all times. By taking part we hope to demonstrate and build our support more prominently and raise awareness of how the BHF, through its research and healthcare innovations will reduce heart and circulatory diseases and together Beat Heartbreak Forever, for everyone.
This is only the start for us, we will be back again next year for sure! #WeHeartPride
