SAE Pride Resources

SAE Pride Resources

Pride Month is an annual celebration launched after New York’s Stonewall Riots in 1969. 

Usually taking place over June, the month-long series of events aims to mark LGBTQ+ history, achievements, and ongoing struggle for equality. 

It brings together many different individuals and organisations to celebrate LGBTQ+ rights and is an event we want to support at SAE.

In 2023, we profiled leading LGBTQ+ creatives. In our latest blog, here are some groups, events, resources and charities that could be useful to the creative community. 

Creative LGBTQ+ groups
