Pride month 2022

Pride Month at Host.

Here at Host, we’re proud to promote a diverse living and working environment and actively encourage our staff and students to celebrate Pride month. Pride month or LGBT History month aims to promote equality and diversity for the benefit of the public.

Around the world every June, various events are held as a way of recognising the influence LGBT people have had on the world. Why was June chosen? Because it is when the Stonewall Riots took place, way back in 1969, find out more about the Stonewall riots here.

As Pride month comes to an end, we take a look back at what some of our sites have been up to throughout June. Loads of our locations have taken part in the month by decorating their common areas and handing out pride themed goodies!  including, The Glassworks in Leicester, Bernard Myers House and The Curve in London, and The Elements in Sheffield.
