York Lib Dems Celebrate Pride

York Lib Dems Pride 2017

Local Lib Dems were joined by Baroness Lynne Featherstone for the annual York LGBT Pride celebration on Saturday 10 June. Lynne spoke at the start of the parade, saying that none of her work in politics had made her as happy as legalising same sex marriage, and even though many people had been involved the real credit should go to the LGBT campaigners who had fought hard for their rights.

The parade wound its way from the Minster to the Knavesmire, where a large Lib Dem team helped run our stall from which we handed out leaflets, chatted to party goers and offered lemon curd tarts! The whole event was a demonstration of the values of openness and tolerance which the Lib Dems hold so dearly.
