    Recognising LGBTQ+ History Month

    Perhaps it is just human nature to look for danger and negativity because often when we reflect on history we tend to remember the troubled times. Like any optimist would tell you in a cycle the good times always follow the bad, hard work pays off and the good guy always gets the girl (or boy 😉) at the end of the film. LGBTQ+ History month is no different and we observe the often-troubling reflections of the past, teamed with the victory or triumph which followed it. June 2022 marks 50 years of the Pride celebrations in the UK and it’s amazing to think of the accomplishments achieved in that time regarding shifts in political climates, rights won and the hearts and minds which have been changed by our loving community. At Building Pride, we want to think of this year’s LGBTQ+ History month like it is 5,10,50 years in the future and what actions it would take now to achieve those future ambitions. We would like to predict a future where we will look back on there being a cure for HIV and AIDS, marriage is legal in all countries for all people and same-sex couples have the same rights to IVF or starting a family as anyone else. The actions we take today impact tomorrow's horizon and we are proud to do our part in that global shift.

    Developing communities, business and people through social enterprise

    Enterprises addressing social issues may seem a recent trend, but our company was established over three hundred years ago to meet a social need: supporting a community left vulnerable after the destruction caused by the Great Fire of London. After all these years we still support the same principles. Which is why we have increased our involvement with the School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE). Our skills help their students address community issues on both sides of the Atlantic – and their experiences give us both personal and commercial insight.
