Rail Celebrates Pride Month with Rail Pride Fest

View all news

Network Rail is marking LGBT Pride Month by hosting its second annual Pride Fest event across two weeks in June, following the success of the inaugural event last year.

The festival – led by Network Rail’s Archway employee network – will feature a series of events, including panel debates, a guest appearance from LGBT+ activist Peter Tatchell, and drag queen bingo. All events will be held virtually and are free to attend for anyone in the rail industry.

The festival is fundraising for, and raising awareness of Terrence Higgins Trust (THT) – the UK’s leading HIV and AIDS charity.

Shane Andrews MBE, who leads Network Rail’s Archway employee network, said: “Our Archway employee network is always thinking of ways we can mark LGBT Pride Month, and this year is definitely our busiest yet.

“With over 1,000 members across the rail industry, Archway plays a vital role in promoting diversity, inclusion and equality. This year’s festival will be another opportunity for us to come together and influence positive change for the LGBT+ community.”
