RuTC celebrate Pride Month 2022

Thursday 30 June 2022

The month of June is globally considered to be Pride Month, a month in which we celebrate and commemorate all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people as well as the history, culture and contributions they have made, along with their communities.

To mark the occasion, RuTC (Richmond upon Thames College) organised a number of activities.

Each week in June, students discussed a Pride related topic in their morning tutorials, the last being ‘Will you see LGBTQ+ discrimination eliminated within your generation?’ which encouraged students to engage in important discussions amongst their peers in a safe and supportive environment.

In addition, RuTC welcomed Metro Charity’s ‘Pride Roadshow’ at the college’s Platinum Jubilee celebration, (8 June) and No Straight Answer (LGBTQ+ support group) based at Heatham House Youth Centre in Twickenham, to speak to students, offer advice and helpful information resources.

Lastly, on 22nd June, the student services team wore a colour each of the 6 colour Pride flag to express RuTC’s solidarity and support of the LGBTQ+ community.

Rachel Scarborough, Director of Student Services at RuTC is happy to celebrate the month-long event, explaining, “Pride is a celebration of a vital piece of Western history. RuTC is proud to stand alongside the LGBTQ+ community, offering support to anyone, staff or student who may need it.

“Pride is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to learn more about the LGBTQ+ community and as proud allies, we encourage everyone to educate themselves on issues facing LGBTQ+ people today.”
