Love Is Great Britain: Celebrating the UK Government’s Largest Participation in Pride Activities in the Americas

Love Is Great Britain: Celebrating the UK Government’s Largest Participation in Pride Activities in the Americas | LGBT Destinations | Scoop.it

As part of VisitBritain’s Love is GREAT campaign, the British government will celebrate LGBT rights by participating in local Pride events in 16 cities across the US, Mexico, and Canada this year, and will launch a nationwide sweepstakes on June 10th, 2017 to win a trip to Great Britain. The UK is proud to be recognized as one of the most progressive countries in the world for LGBT rights.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

The UK is the first foreign government to participate in Pride on such a significant scale in the Americas and is proud to continue the tradition this year. Activity will also commemorate the start of decriminalization of homosexuality in England & Wales with the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act of 1967. Love is GREAT will highlight the UK as a champion of LGBT equality and a global leader in human rights across policy, business, arts, culture, and tourism.

If you’re in town for a good time, know that there is plenty to be had. Here are 10 things you probably didn’t know about LGBTQ San Francisco.
