This month is Pride month and whilst many in-person events have been postponed, we can still all be visible and vocal in our support for our LGBTQ+ communities and organisations.

We are really lucky in Camden to have an amazing range of LGBTQ+ groups based here including forum+, Opening Doors, and Mosaic.

We must remember the legacy of Stonewall is that change comes because people are brave to raise their voices and call out injustice, and this Pride month I want to celebrate Camden’s legacy of fighting for equality, and defending the hard won rights of all LGBTQ+ people.

As we move into the summer period I know many people will be wanting to spend more time outside and see family and friends.

It is important that we continue to all work together to keep each other safe and stop the spread of the virus.

The Government has announced changes to the guidance for social distancing from July 4, and more spaces will soon be able to open – we’ll be including more detailed information about this here next week. We continue to work with our communities, businesses and you our residents to keep Camden safe, strong and open for everyone.

Councillor Georgia Gould, Leader of Camden Council
