Microsoft LGBT Pride Campaign – Pre LGBT Pride event with Microsoft employees
On Saturday 25th June 2016 the streets of London will be filled with people coming together for the LGBT Pride London Parade, and for Microsoft, being part of the Pride Campaign is much more than a parade. Microsoft’s role is to support a global push for equality for the LGBT community, and in the wake of the tragic shooting in Orlando, there will be an extra effort and commitment to celebrate diversity and inclusion ahead of the parade.

Prior to the London Pride parade, Microsoft bring the LGBT Pride party to their offices around London – in Reading and Paddington and the photo booth tour pulls together all the Microsoft workforce and captures their messages of support from staff. The bright and bold LGBT branded photo pod is a favourite between the Megabooth team, view pictures from last year’s post London Pride parade at Microsoft.
On the day of the parade Mictrosoft will invite people to join their UK GLEAM (Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual & Transgender Employees at Microsoft) and walk the entire route of the parade and create a colourful festival atmosphere to brighten up the streets of London.
