June is Pride Month, a time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and raise awareness of the history of equality and the issues faced by LGBTQ+ people all around the world.

At Didsbury High School, we are celebrating Pride Month to acknowledge the equality, acceptance and inclusion we are so proud to have in our school community.

As part of our celebrations, we asked our students and staff what Pride means to them, here is what they had to say:

What does Pride mean to you?

“Pride is a reminder that Didsbury High School celebrates all people and embraces our diversity.”

“Pride is all about accepting and celebrating your authentic self without shame or judgement.”

“Pride is a chance for me to celebrate who I am with the people I love the most.”

“Pride means solidarity. It’s a time when we all come together to support our LGBTQ+ friends.”

“For me, Pride is about resilience. It’s a celebration of the progress we’ve made and a reminder of the work still ahead. It’s a time to stand together and show that love is love.”

“To me, Pride is about visibility. It’s about making sure that everyone knows they’re not alone and that there’s a community ready to support them. It’s about being proud of who you are, no matter what.”

“Pride is where everyone gets to be their full true self, without embarrassment or fear of judgement.”

We work to ensure that our school is an inclusive environment for all. In PSHE lessons, students learn about different relationships to foster an understanding and respectful environment.

Happy Pride Month from all of us at Didsbury High School!
