Should white members of the LGBT+ community be allowed to attend UK Black Pride?

This weekend, as part of one of the most anticipated celebrations of the summer, thousands of people have made the trek to the capital for Pride. But the parade didn’t end yesterday. Today, UK Black Pride, one of the most significant Pride events in the country, will be held in Hackney’s Haggerston Park for the first time. UK Black Pride is Europe’s largest party for LGBT+ people of African, Asian, Caribbean, Middle Eastern and Latin American descent, and creates a safe space for people from these diverse backgrounds to celebrate their sexuality, culture and shared experiences. Their mission statement echoes that sentiment, saying: “UK Black Pride promotes unity and cooperation among LGBT+ people of diasporic communities in the UK, as well as their friends and families.” Cooperation between LGBT+ people from ethnic minorities and their white contemporaries has been an endless battle, however. Research conducted by Stonewall in 2018 revealed that 51 per cent of LGBT+ people of colour (POC) have experienced racism and discrimination from within the LGBT+ community.
