On Saturday over 590 people from 23 construction and engineering firms represented #BuildingEquality at London’s Pride parade, marching alongside the now iconic rainbow JCB provided by Flannery Plant.
The theme of this year’s event was ‘Pride Jubilee’, marking 50 years since the Stonewall Riots which sparked the modern Pride movement. BuildingEquality joined over 600 other parade groups to honour the 50 years of activism, protests and victories that have made Pride what it is today.
This year is the fifth London Pride parade BuildingEquality have attended, growing from 50 marchers from four companies in 2015 to nearly 600 in 2019 with Ramboll joining for the first time in 2018. BuildingEquality continue to drive change, not just through main contractors but also through the supply chain, encouraging an inclusive environment to reduce stress and anxiety amongst LGBTQ+ employees.
