Ampthill Town Council and Flitwick Town Council celebrate LGBT+ History Month


The National Association of Local Councils attended Proud Ampthill and Flitwick (Proud AF) to celebrate LGBT+ History Month with Ampthill Town Council and Flitwick Town Council. 

The event, held on 15 February 2023 in Flitwick in Bedfordshire, brought together community members, activists, and local officials to honour the contributions and struggles of the LGBT+ community.

Nelly Wright, a member of Proud AF, captivated the audience with their journey, shedding light on the challenges and triumphs experienced as a member of the LGBT+ community. Their story resonated deeply, emphasising the importance of visibility and acceptance.

In addition to personal narratives, John Gross from the Terrence Higgins Trust Milton Keynes addressed attendees on the critical topic of HIV prevention, specifically highlighting the significance of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP). Gross's informative session underscored the ongoing efforts needed to combat HIV/AIDS and support individuals within the LGBT+ community.

The event received significant support from Flitwick Town Council and Ampthill Town Council, who graciously extended the invitation to Flitwick's representatives. Their collaboration and endorsement underscored their commitment to inclusivity and diversity within their communities.

NALC expresses its gratitude for the invitation and emphasises the importance of such events in fostering understanding and solidarity. NALC encourages other local (parish and town) councils to organise similar initiatives, inviting them to share their efforts with the broader community.
