Happy Pride Month From BOHO
At BOHO, we believe in and champion equality and diversity. This philosophy means equal opportunity for all, giving every individual the chance to achieve their potential, free from prejudice and discrimination. We strive to create inclusive communities in all of our buildings where our staff and resident’s wellbeing is number one priority. This includes our student accommodation, hotels and apartments.
Every year, during the month of June, the LGBT+ community celebrates Pride in various ways around the World. June is chosen as Pride Month as this is when the Stonewall Riots took place back in New York in 1969 and as the riots progressed, an international gay rights movement was born.
As well as being a month-long celebration, Pride month is also an important opportunity to peacefully protest and raise political awareness of current issues facing the LGBT+ community. There are parades, street parties, festivals, public speaking and educational sessions which take place around the Word, all of which are covered by the media and attract millions of participants every year.
