Scotland’s Railway march with Pride

Saturday, 17 August 2019

Scotland’s Railway will show its support for the LGBT+ community this weekend during Pride Glasgow.

Alex Hynes, Managing Director of Scotland’s Railway, will join colleagues from ScotRail and Network Rail in the Pride parade today (Saturday, 17 August) as it makes its way through the streets of Glasgow.

In the latest demonstration of their continued support for Scotland’s LGBT+ community, ScotRail and Network Rail are entering a decorative float into the march.

ScotRail will also display supportive messages on its information screens at stations.

This year’s Pride events mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, which are widely recognised as a pivotal moment in LGBT+ history and the start of the fight for LGBT+ equality.

Alex Hynes, Managing Director of Scotland’s Railway, said:

“I’m looking forward to taking part in Pride Glasgow along with colleagues from across Scotland’s Railway.

“Pride Glasgow’s mission to create advancements in citizenship and community development while promoting equality and diversity fits really closely with our own vision and values.

“While we have come a long way in this country, LGBT+ people can still face discrimination in both their work and social lives simply for being who they are. So, I am extremely proud that Scotland’s Railway is leading by example and creating a genuinely inclusive place to work."
