Stronger Together.

The theme of this year’s Pride is strength in unity.

Channel Islands Pride is all-inclusive event, open to anyone who wants to support the LGBTQ+ community and to celebrate and promote equality for all in the Channel Islands and across the world.

The LGBTQ family is a global one that crosses national borders. When a trans woman is murdered in Brazil, we recognise her as our sister. When a gay man is stoned to death in Jamaica, we recognise him as our brother. When the LGBTQ community in another country wins the right to marry, we celebrate with them. 

We may not speak the same language, but every member of the LGBTQ community knows what it means to be in a minority in their population.

This shared experience has helped to create strong bonds across the globe, even between citizens of countries that may be poles apart ideologically, and has advanced the movement for equal rights at a more rapid pace than thought possible, so that we are beginning to see even the most homophobic and transphobic countries bowing to pressure to reform from within and outside their country.

Inter-island rivalry is something that we are all used to in the Channel Islands, pan-island co-operation is rare. At Liberate, because we are part of the global LGBTQ community, we know that the Bailiwicks of Guernsey and Jersey have more in common than they have differences and that is why we celebrate Channel Islands Pride. Working together, where possible, to avoid duplication of resources and sharing ideas to reach solutions quicker, helps us, as a pan-island charity, to serve our respective communities better. We hope other organisations are inspired to take their service to the community pan-island. It can be done.

This year Liberate is proud that it can say: the Bailiwicks of Guernsey and Jersey are #strongertogether.
