Could you be one of our Human Rights Champions this year?

You don’t have to be LGB or T to march in Bournemouth’s LGBT rights parade. All you need is a bit of passion in your guts about the way in which LGBT people are still being treated around the world: shunned, arrested, imprisoned, and executed.

Every year for the last few years, a merry band of Dorset Humanists have marched in the parade to draw attention to the human rights struggle for LGBT rights around the world. But we would love to make a bigger impact with more numbers. Could you be a human rights champion this year?

It’s not all doom and gloom however. Bourne Free is a fantastic carnival of diversity supported by dozens of different groups and major employers in Bournemouth. Those who join us are often surprised at how much fun it is to take part.

After the parade, we engage with hundreds of residents and visitors to Bournemouth at our brightly decorated tent in the Lower Gardens. It’s our showcase event of the year when Dorset Humanists is open and visible to the world.

Will you sign up and be part of it this year? Sign-up sheets are at our meetings or RSVP on here. Meet at our tent in the Lower Gardens at 10.00am for a 10.15am departure to the East Cliff starting point. Wear a Dorset Humanists t-shirt (available on request) or a white tee.

Dorset Humanists is a partner of the Dorset LGB&T Equality Network and of Humanists UK LGBT section.
