Before the pandemic started, Pam and Baptiste spent an afternoon brainstorming to find an easy to remember name for our group. The group was created in 2019 and its name was the Gainsborough LGBT Group. We noticed that the LGBT+ acronym wasn’t very well known in this part of the planet. We decided to find something inclusive for everyone and which wasn’t an acronym, so after several coffees, we made up our mind on “Gainsborough Pride”.
We submitted our idea to the other members of the group and they all agreed with the new name.
We want to be inclusive and encompass all diversities within our community and we felt that an acronym wasn’t adequate to fulfil our goals.
