Pride in London 2022 - What's going on?

It's the big one! We're excited to share plans for Pride in London 2022 with Intertech and our fabulous sponsors Capgemini & Amdocs. 🏳️‍🌈

As always, Intertech will be present and marching in the Pride in London parade once again this year. This year however we've mixed things up and approached ticketing a little different.

💜 Here's all you need to know to grab a spot to join Intertech’s contingent promoting diversity in tech...

There are a very limited number of parade places for organisations this year so as to help increase representation of our diverse and wonderful LGBTQ+ community - this means we have just a handful of tickets available for Intertech. For this year only, the team have taken the decision to invite members and supporters who have stuck with us through the rough and the smooth over the last decade and helped get us to where we are today; these wonderful individuals will be joining us in our t-shirts on the day.

However this isn't all and we do have a few spaces available - despite not opening registration publicly. We would LOVE to have some of your join us on the day, especially those who have engaged with us before as our way of thanking you for your support!

If you know you can join on us on July 2nd, from mid morning onwards, and want to be a part of the action then simply reply to this email with the following details:

  • Full Name
  • Mobile Number
  • T-Shirt Preference (Small to X-Large)
Whilst we can't guarantee a spot to those who email, we will do everything we can to get as many familiar faces there on the day for what promises to be a fantastic Pride in London parade.

We will confirm your space via email as well as share further details early next week. If we don't confirm your space this means we've not been able to allocate a ticket on this occasion and we're sorry, but next year we'll be back to our usual registration process and would love to see you there.

That's not all though, keep reading below for a great chance to get involved and take part in the Pride in London parade with one of our tech friends...

Intertech @ Microsoft

Microsoft is kicking off Pride month with an in-person event for the GLEAM and Intertech communities at the Microsoft Reactor in London, and it's going to be a fantastic opportunity to meet face to face with many individuals who we've not seen for a very long time.

On the evening we'll be hearing from Stonewall on their advocacy work across Conversion Therapy, Trans Rights and how they have supported Refugees including a panel discussion.

Naturally there will be plenty of time for networking to celebrate Pride and the start of a season of events and we can't wait to see you all there.

Intertech @ Pride in London 2021

We're delighted to confirm that the Intertech team have submitted our application to take part in the the UK’s biggest Pride parade - Pride in London. The parade will take place on Sept 11th 2021 after the original parade was cancelled due to the global pandemic and we're very excited about what this might look like.

We're still very much in the early planning stages with many questions unanswered around our Pride celebrations. Naturally, we will of course be following UK Government advice with all of our events and participation in the parade.
