Pride Month, typically in June, is dedicated to celebration and commemoration of LGBTQIA+ pride, observed in the Western world. The event was popularised after the Stonewall riots, a series of gay liberation protests in 1969 in America, and has since grown internationally.

We spoke to our Operations Director, John McCrohan, about why it’s important that we at the MCF is marking Pride Month and engaging in the conversation about issues affecting the LGBTQIA+ community in June, and beyond…


Our message this year is strong – we chose ‘marching together to build a better future’ which ties in with our strapline ‘building better lives’, because we feel that we’re at an exciting stage of our journey towards a brighter, inclusive future which we’ll achieve by working together.

As John mentioned, we have some exciting things in the pipeline for Pride Month. This includes an interactive staff workshop in our office which will be hosted by two staff members, Ames and Caitlin, to talk about LGBTQIA+ issues and the importance of allyship. On top of this On top of this, you’ll hear stories from Freemasons and charities that work with the queer community who we’ve been able to support – so stay tuned on our website and social media channels.

At the Pride in London event, members of MCF and UGLE staff will be joined by LGBTQIA+ members of the Freemasonry community and allied friends and families.
