The UK is one of the most progressive countries in Europe for LGBT rights and equality, with more than 60 annual Pride events held in cities across the UK, and an additional 16 cities across the US. 2017 Atlanta Pride marks the fourth year the British Consulate-General Atlanta will participate in the festivities. In fact, it’s the only foreign mission in Atlanta to take part. On Sunday, 15 October, join us for breakfast, the parade march, and a post-parade reception.
Meanwhile, you can enter to win a free #LoveIsGREAT trip to Britain, where a warm welcome awaits. It features round-trip tickets, six night’s accommodation, a trip to Glasgow, and more. The deadline is 16 October, so enter today at visitbritain.com/loveisgreat
On the run-up to Atlanta Pride, the British Consulate-General Atlanta is also holding a raffle for a chance to win two great prizes:
- Two Premium Economy tickets (with upgrades to Upper Class, if space permits) on Virgin Atlantic from the US to the UK, and
- Two nights in the Presidential Suite at Hotel Indigo Atlanta – Vinings.
100% of the proceeds will go to Lost-n-Found Youth, a non-profit that supports LGBT youth in Atlanta with housing and job skills. For more information and the chance to win, click here: go.rallyup.com/bcga.
