Pride rainbow

Following the success of the legal industry at this year's Pride in London parade, the Law Society is teaming up with CILEx to go to Cardiff. We are committed to supporting LGBT legal professionals and clients all over the UK, and we'd like to invite you to join us and show your support by marching with us.

The legal bodies taking part are:

Bar CouncilBar Lesbian and Gay GroupCILEX
Interlaw Diversity ForumJunior Lawyers DivisionFreeBar

Two ways to get involved

1. Join us in Cardiff

Friday 12 August

Come to the free pre-parade screening of Pride the film at the Law Society's Wales office in Cardiff. We'll be putting on food and drinks. It will be an opportunity to pick up your Pride t-shirt and kick off the celebration with your fellow marchers. 

Saturday 13 August - Parade day

You are welcome to join us for pre-Pride continental breakfast at New Law at 09:00. Here you can pick up your placards, banners, whistles and stickers. The parade will start at 11:00 just outside the New Law building. 

To register and let us know you are joining, please email legalpride@lawsociety.org.uk

Let us know that you'd like to attend Cardiff Pride, and if you would like to attend all, or some of the film, breakfast and parade.

We look forward to marching with you! 

2. Tweet your selfie

We're asking the legal profession to tweet a selfie using the hashtag #lawwithnofilter.

We want members to support our stance that all are equal under the law and no one should have to live their life pretending to be someone they're not. This ties in with this year's Pride theme of #nofilter.

What's a selfie? A selfie is a self-portrait, usually taken at arm's length or taken by someone else, using your smartphone.

We want you to take a selfie, holding something that tells us your name, job title, and how you identify with or support LGBT.

For example, here's Christopher. He holds up his piece of paper, takes his selfie and shares it on Twitter:

All expressions of identity are welcome, including 'straight ally' or 'LGBT supporter'.

Remember to use the #lawwithnofilter hashtag - let's make it trend!
