The Yorkshire-based Pride organisation, which is hosting its 2024 event on 21 July, told PinkNews that it had removed a point in its code of conduct after an LGBTQ+ group refused to participate in the protest. In a section on the Leeds Pride Parade 2024 guidance document, which details terms and conditions for individuals and walking groups entering the event, the organisation wrote that comments about “specific individuals, beliefs, or political opinions are strictly forbidden.” “Religious material is acceptable but must be respectful, positive, and considerate of others’ beliefs,” the point continued. “Clearance from Leeds Pride is required for any religious material or imagery.”
