Trowers & Hamlins marks the 50th Stonewall anniversary and prepares of a week of Pride activities
Top 40 law firm Trowers & Hamlins is preparing for a week of events and activities in honour of Pride 2019 which will include decorations, photography, baking and much more in order to raise funds for Stonewall Housing, an LGBT housing charity chaired by Trowers partner and chair of the firm's equality and diversity committee, Helen Randall.
The events are being led by the firm's LGBTQ+ committee and Allies Network as part of TrowersIncludes with members and allies attending the Pride marches in London taking place on Saturday 6th July and Black Pride on Sunday 7th July. This follows on from the firm's presence at Exeter Pride and Birmingham Pride earlier in the year,
Solicitor and co-chair of the Trowers LGBTQ+ committee, Julian Jarrett* comments on the impact of the Stonewall uprising and how it has shaped the world we live in today:
"As an openly gay man who is able to live without state interference in my personal life because of my sexuality, we should celebrate how far we have come whilst defending those rights and privileges which the brave New Yorkers helped us to achieve as a result of the Stonewall uprising.
Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising and I will be marching in the London Pride parade next week to pay tribute to the event in support of the LGBTQ+ community and to encourage people to continue the progress that has been made across the globe."
