Celebrating Pride 2021
Wishing all of our LGBTQ+ community a joyful #Pride month this June. Everyone should be free to be their authentic self.
June is widely known around the word as Pride Month, dating back to the Stonewall riots in June 1969. The first Pride rally in the UK was held in London on 1st July 1972 with approximately 2000 participants.
Durham Pride UK founded in 2014, has grown over the years and in 2019 welcomed an incredible 25,000 people! Following the isolation of COVID-19 Durham Pride will be back at the end of July.

Tackling racial harassment in higher education
Following on from Equality and Human Right’s Commission’s 2019 report Tackling racial harassment: universities challenged Universities UK (UUK) have published a new set of recommendations designed to decisively tackle racial harassment in UK higher education.
At Durham, we are committed to addressing race inequalities and are working on tackling racial harassment. We recognise that we are at the beginning of this journey, and welcome this guidance from UUK, which provides useful case studies and highlights practical steps and areas of focus; many of which we are responding to at Durham University. The full report Tackling racial harassment in higher education, along with the webcast are available on the UUK website.
