Pride Month 2017

Here at Gandeys World Class Productions we pride ourselves on celebrating diversity.

June is the month of diversity as it is known in the LGBT+ community as Pride month. 

June was chosen to commemorate the Stonewall Riots which happened at the end of June in 1969. As a result many events are held each year to celebrate the LGBT+ community and the positive impact they have on society. 

Huge organisations now celebrate Pride month, including some of the biggest brands across the globe.


Skittles have 'removed the rainbow' from their packets in honour of Pride month as they claim 'During Pride, only one rainbow matters'.


Facebook have created a Pride Reaction Emoji which users will have for the month of June.


Converse are also supporting the movement with their limited Pride range. All the proceeds from this range go to the It Gets Better Project and Miley Cyrus' Happy Hippie Foundation.

It is incredible to see brands like these getting involved in Pride month all across the globe with a very important message to spread.

The Lady Boys of Bangkok, the queens of Pride, are currently in Manchester until the 24th of June. Don't miss them before they leave!
