Join us at Pride in London on Saturday 25th June 2016







On Saturday 25th  June 2016, the Law Society will be leading a group of legal sector representatives in the Pride in London parade. The legal sector will be represented by BLAGG members, LAGLA, ILEX, Bar Council, Interlaw plus others marching together under the legal sector banner.

We will be once again celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) diversity in the legal profession under the banner ‘All are equal under the law’.

Please register to attend the march.

The invitation extends to lawyers, non lawyers, LGBT and allies to join us to march for equality with the legal sector! Friends and family plus dogs are all welcome to join us too!

Please email to register. (You must register so that a lovely purple t-shirt can be ordered for you.)

Before the event there will be networking drinks on Friday 24 June from 18:00 – 20:00 at the offices of the Law Society on Chancery Lane. You’ll be able to network with other marchers from the legal sector and collect your free t-shirt.

On the day

The parade is on Saturday 25 June.

The official meeting point for the legal sector will be Portland Place at 12:30. The parade will start at 13:00.

A post-march party will start immediately after the parade ends which will provide ample opportunity for networking and socialising. This is held at Walkers of Whitehall.


This year’s Pride theme is #nofilter, to emphasise that no one should have to live their life pretending to be someone they’re not.

The legal profession is joining in with the theme with our message: #lawwithnofilter – All are equal under the law.

Support our campaign by tweeting a selfie on 6 June using the hashtag #lawwithnofilter.

It’s easy to get involved. Take a photo of yourself holding a banner, plaque, board, sheet of paper or whatever is around the office with your name, job title, and LGBT or ally identity.

For example:

John Wills, solicitor, I have a husband #lawwithnofilter

Jane Smith, team leader, gay woman #lawwithnofilter

Jack Jones, customer services, gender fluid #lawwithnofilter

Sophie Taylor, adviser, straight ally #lawwithnofilter

All expressions of identity are welcome.

Why are we marching?

Equality for all under the law is a principle that the legal sector as a whole supports and works to promote. Lawyers are advocates of equal rights for all, whether that is challenging those who make unjust decisions, or defending those who face discrimination of any kind. Lawyers are also a diverse group of human beings, who play as well as work, and can face discrimination themselves.
