|Rachael Maskell (MP for York Central) at York Pride 2017|
On Saturday 10 June we were delighted to support York Pride - for the fourth year in a row. Members of the public signed 200 postcards in support of people around the world who face discrimination (or persecution) for their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Rachael Maskell (who was re-elected two days earlier as Member of Parliament for the York Central constituency and spent a lot of time at the stall) lent her support with the message "Love is a human right".
