QUEER MARCH ON HACKNEY!
MARCH STARTS 2PM
SATURDAY 4TH SEPTEMBER 2010
BY HACKNEY TOWN HALL
TO SHOREDITCH CHURCH
A voluntary community group has been formed to organise HACKNEY PRIDE MARCH in response to the rise of homophobic and transphobic attacks in the borough.
We want the event to be inclusive and show the unity of all communities in Hackney against not only homophobic and transphobic attacks, but all hate crime and intolerance.
We want the march to become a touch point and a platform for all the LGBT and queer community groups and charities in the Borough, as well as organisations who support LGBT, queer and human rights. We want to encourage all of these groups to share information and be visible at the march.
Alongside the community focus of Hackney Pride March is the increased de-politicisation and commercialisation of 'pride' events globally and for this reason we have set out to create a non-commercial event. No money, sponsorship or promotion will be received by any commercial businesses through Hackney Pride March.
