NALC makes historic appearance at Corby Pride 2024


The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) made a significant and important appearance at Corby Pride on 22 June 2024, marking its first-ever involvement in a Pride event. 

This remarkable event highlights NALC's commitment to diversity, inclusion, and support for the LGBT+ community and sets a new standard for local government participation in such events.

Supported by Corby Town Council, Corby Pride was a vibrant celebration of diversity and unity in Northamptonshire. The event featured a lively parade, live entertainment, community stalls, and a diverse range of activities, all aimed at fostering a spirit of inclusiveness and celebrating the LGBTQ+ community.

As a key participant, NALC is not just representing but actively engaging with Pride Month. The parade, starting at Cory Cube and proceeding to Coronation Park, is a platform for NALC to showcase its commitment to community diversity and inclusivity. NALC representatives also met the local mayor, Cllr Ross Armour, to discuss their ongoing initiatives, further demonstrating their active engagement in creating more inclusive local governance.

NALC's involvement in Corby Pride 2024 is part of a broader strategy to promote diversity and inclusivity across all local councils in England. It is actively working on several initiatives, including creating content such as blogs on LGBT+ issues, setting up a national network dedicated to LGBT+ councillors and supporting Pride events.

NALC chair, Cllr Keith Stevens, expressed enthusiasm at NALC's participation, commenting, "This is a significant milestone for NALC. Our presence at Corby Pride 2024 reflects our dedication to promoting equality and inclusivity within parish and town councils and the communities they serve. We are honoured to be part of this celebration and look forward to engaging further and supporting the LGBT+ community."

Corby Pride 2024 is building upon the resounding success of its inaugural event last year, promising even more vibrant celebrations of diversity and unity in Northamptonshire.
