If you hadn’t noticed by the sea of rainbows (we’re living for them), June is Pride month; a month to celebrate the diversity, resilience and beauty of the LGBTQIA+ community. But it’s also Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History month – an initiative which started in 2008 to “tackle prejudice, challenge myths and to amplify the voices of Gypsies, Roma and Travellers in wider society,” through “celebration, education and raising awareness,” according to Friends, Families and Travellers, a charity which works to end discrimination against Gypsy, Roma and Travellers (GRT). There is still a lot of misunderstanding, stereotyping, and prejudice facing GRT communities. A recent survey found that 62% of Gypsy or Travellers had experienced racial assault. It also showed that they were more likely to have poorer health outcomes and are 2.5 times more at risk of not having access to health and social care than white British people.
