About LGBTQ+ Pride 2021

What is Pride?

Pride began as a protest - we celebrate annually in June to honour the 1969 Stonewall riots, which changed gay rights in the USA and beyond. It’s now a way for us all to come together in celebration, unity and solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community. It’s an opportunity to celebrate how far rights for LGTBQ+ people have come, highlight the many contributions of amazing LGBTQ+ people and push for continued progress.

Why are we using the Progress Pride flag?

Designed by Daniel Quasar in 2018, the Progress Pride flag features black and brown stripes to represent people of colour, and light blue, pink and white to include the trans flag in its design. This flag recognises intersectionality within the LGBTQ+ community and honours LGBTQ+ people of colour, whose activism inspired the very first Pride, as well as different gender identities.

Citizens Advice is committed to being an inclusive organisation for LGBTQ+ people.


 Each year we give 20,000 local people the advice they need to solve around 55,000 brand new problems.

If you need advice on any issue that is causing you a problem follow the links on this site to see how we can help you. The subjects we specialise in are problems with social security benefits, personal debt, or housing; employment disputes and immigration issues. We also offer specialist help to the victims of crime.

We make our services as accessible as we can to the many communities within the local area.  All of our premises have been especially designed to be as accessible as possible to people with physical disabilities, mobility or sensory impairments.

What we do

Problems rarely come singly. Our advice looks at the whole of a person's situation and addresses the whole of the problem.  Citizens Advice's uniquely holistic service enables us to address each of these issues, accessing specialist advice within the organisation where necessary, making referrals to external agencies where appropriate, but all offered under the umbrella of the area’s only genuine one-stop shop.
