It’s Pride Month! Time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and raise awareness for LGBTQ+ rights. Like many others we’ve had to re-evaluate how we celebrate this year. Although we can’t be gathering for Pride parties, festivals, parades and other events this month it’s still important that we celebrate Pride and draw attention to the campaign for LGBTQ+ equality. It’s particularly important that we reflect on the history of gay rights movements and the people central to those movements. Take a look at what we’ve got going on.

Pride Party on The Sims
The Islington’s Pride team would normally be preparing (getting excited) for Pride events and as we won’t be able to do that this year some of that energy has prompted a foray into creating a Sims Pride Festival. Check out our Islington’s Pride The Sims Pride Festival.
