Events like Leeds Pride – which is Yorkshire’s biggest celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans life – are attracting a growing army of corporate sponsors as more employers become aware of the need to create workplaces where everyone can be true to themselves.The growing list of corporate names supporting Pride shows that the battle for hearts and minds in the corporate world is being won.
