Aberystwyth University is one of the main sponsors for Pride Cymru’s Big Weekend which takes place in Cardiff on 23 – 25 August 2019.

Voted one of the UK’s top 100 employers for inclusivity in the workplace according to Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index, Aberystwyth University is sponsoring the event for the fourth year.

The University’s presence at Pride Cymru comes as part of a programme of events organised throughout the year involving its LGBTA network Enfys Aber.

Ruth Fowler, Communications and Equalities Officer at Aberystwyth University said: “We’re really pleased to be involved in such a high profile LGBT event this summer, it’s fantastic that the University is one of the sponsors of Pride Cymru once again this year.”

Aberystwyth University have sponsored the volunteer package at this year’s Pride Cymru which will see all volunteers wearing t-shirts throughout the weekend’s celebration branded with the University’s logo.

Some of the acts to hit the stage in Cardiff over the weekend include Joel Dommett, Gok Wan, Shellyann Evans and Tina Cousins.

Aberystwyth University has a vibrant LGBT network that meets once a month with the next meeting taking place on Tuesday 17 September at the Visualisation Centre, Penglais Campus.
