York Pride 2015 – York St John raises its rainbow!


York is becoming filled with rainbows in the lead up to York Pride 2015, with organisations and individuals across the city showing their support for the LGBT community as part of the #RaiseYourRainbow #YorkCityOfRainbows campaign.

Today, University Chaplain Annie Rowley raised a rainbow flag outside the chapel following her statement last week. This afternoon staff gathered by the flag to support the campaign. A photo of this, along with other symbols of support for the campaign from within the university, are in the tweets embedded below.
