Please note that there is no July Monthly as the planned visit to the Hindu Temple in Hull has been postponed for obvious reasons. YIG Committee will use this 'break' to consolidate all the wonderful suggestions that we received as part of our June Annual Planning meeting for Interfaith Week (8-15th Nov) and next year's calendar.
June has been very much a troubled month highlighting issues of inequality, prejudice, injustice, hatred etc. May I thank all our members for their continued collective resolve to act against these through continued dialogue and promotion of equality, diversity and inclusivity – we are far more united than divided. End of June also marks the end of PRIDE month. Across the globe, various events, albeit virtual, have been held during this month as a way of recognising the influence LGBT+ people have had around the world. Why was June chosen? Because it is when the Stonewall Riots took place, way back in 1969. COVID-19 has restricted many open-air celebrations and parades, including those in York, so we must not forget their importance of raising awareness of current issues facing the community. Happy PRIDE Celebrations!
Wishing you all the very best
