A dozen York Liberal Jewish Community (YLJC) members joined thousands of others in braving the rain to march in this year’s York Pride parade.York Liberal Jewish Community at Pride

The group proudly carried the community’s banner, made especially for the occasion, in the colourful annual celebration of North Yorkshire’s LGBTQI+ community. They were joined by 25 local schools, church groups and political parties.

The YLJC contingent were even pursued down York’s Parliament St by a group of vikings from the Jorvik centre!

YLJC Founder, Ben Rich said: “Ensuring that everyone whatever their gender or sexual orientation feels not only tolerated but positively welcomed in our community is essential to our ethos and has been crucial to York Liberal Jewish Community’s success. We hope this will be just the first of many occasions on which we get to take part in York Pride.”
