Anti-LGBTQ+ National Trust members are asking members to vote for the charity to ban “divisive” Pride events. The National Trust is a charity and membership organisation for heritage conservation in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, which owns a huge variety of land and historic buildings. Despite the organisation having almost six million members, resolutions for its Annual General Meeting (AGM), to be held on 5 November, can be put forward with the support of just 50 members. This year, members will be asked to vote on a resolution calling for National Trust participation in “divisive” Pride events to be banned. The resolution states: “Be it resolved that this AGM deplores participation by the National Trust in gay pride parades as divisive and an unaccountable waste of members’ subscriptions.”
