Last year, for the very first time, we took part in London Pride. Together with staff and volunteers, we marched in the parade to celebrate the diversity of our MS community, and to show our commitment to LGBTQI+ people affected by MS.
COVID-19 means we won’t be marching at London Pride this year – but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate Pride!
Join us and reach out to everyone affected by MS. No matter who you love or how you identify – we’re here for each other.
By joining Pride we set the tone for the organisation and for the community, we make ourselves visible to people who might feel alienated from us. We're sending a clear message that the MS Society celebrates diversity and belongs to us all.Jess Mansel, Senior Engagement, Involvement and Empowerment Officer.
Standing up for everyone with MS
Reflecting and reaching out to everyone in our community is critical to our vision to stop MS.
We want to bring this same spirit to our wider work. That includes speaking out against discrimination or hate that some members of our community may face because of how they look, who they love, or where they live.
Pride's not just for London
We’re supporting this year’s #YouMeUsWe campaign by Pride London – but we encourage the MS community across the UK to get involved. Last year we marched at Belfast Pride and Pride Cymru, and we hope to be at lots more Pride marches across the UK.
Raising awareness online
This year, celebrations across the country are moving online - and you can join us!
