“50 years of Pride” for the National Housing Federation

“Reflecting on Pride over the last 50 years has also given me an opportunity to think about what the movement means to me. As an older person who has been out and proud for the last 30+ years, I’ve seen the LGBTQ+ world around me change beyond recognition with representation more visible than ever and people more able to be their true authentic selves.”

Tina Wathern, Director of Education and Engagement, Stonewall Housing

Our very own Tina Wathern, Director of Education and Engagement at Stonewall Housing, recently penned a blog for our friends at the National Housing Federation.

Reflecting on the 50th anniversary of the first London Pride march, Tina writes about Stonewall Housing’s past and hopes for the future, as well as her own personal experiences.

“If I could have one wish for the future, it would be to create a society which doesn’t need Stonewall Housing, and where my queer family is embraced with love and not hate. Until then I’ll continue shouting loudly with pride about who I am – as the fight is far from over.”
