As an all-inclusive employer, Newport Bus is delighted to be joining the Pride Cymru Parade on Saturday 24th in Cardiff.
This is a fantastic complement to our five local buses which, since the beginning of August have been proudly displaying the iconic rainbow stripes around Newport. Over the Pride Big Weekend, they will be in service taking customers to and from Cardiff.
As a large local employer, we believe that it is important to demonstrate our commitment to providing an inclusive and diverse workplace, where everyone feels at home, regardless of gender, sexuality, age or race.
Penny, one of our drivers commented: “I'm proud to be working for a company that is supporting such an important event. This is a fantastic opportunity to show South Wales how safe and exciting it can be, as well as a good promotional opportunity for our city of Newport.”
Pride Cymru in Cardiff, also called the Big Weekend, is 3 days of pure party atmosphere at Cardiff City Hall Lawns, with live music, funfair rides, stalls and entertainment for all.
The colourful parade will brighten the Cardiff streets on Saturday celebrating the importance of LGBT+ in the community and bringing thousands of people together in style.
Pride Cymru’s Big Weekend will run from Friday 23 August to Sunday 25 August, celebrating its 20th birthday. For more information visit www.pridecymru.com.
