Bursting with Pride

We’ve spent the summer celebrating Pride across the nation at Brighton, Belfast, London, Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle and Cardiff.

We’ve spent the summer celebrating Pride across the nation at Brighton, Belfast, London, Glasgow, Manchester, Newcastle and Cardiff.

Our supermarket disco float has been to a few of these events to help the party get into full swing. Specially designed for Pride, the branded float – a 40-foot delivery truck – was kitted out with a DJ, disco lights, a dance floor and bubble machines.

Many of our stores on the parade routes were also decked out in rainbow colours, while colleagues held raffles, gave out Pride-themed cupcakes and sold Pride T-shirts to raise money for the LGBT Switchboard charity.

All of this summer’s Pride events are supported through our Out at Tesco network, which is one of the largest LGBT networks in Europe and an official sponsor of the Pride in London event. We pride ourselves on being an inclusive workplace where the talents and skills of different people are the thing that’s most valued. Out at Tesco attracts, supports and develops our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex colleagues so that they feel confident to be themselves at work. The network also acts as a confidential advice service for all colleagues.
