It’s been a year since Core Five came together to celebrate International Pride Month 2019, with lots of cake, lots of colourful outfits, and a very special talk from David Mann, one of the founders of Freehold. Sadly, we can’t come together again in person this year, but as a company, we are still very keen to mark the occasion of Pride Month 2020. At Core Five, we find it is always important to continue expanding our understanding of how inequality and discrimination can be present in society in internal, inter-personal, institutional, and structural levels. Even a symbol of equality, such as the rainbow flag, can at times bear blind-spots. That is why this year we have adapted the logo in accordance to a design of the flag first employed in Philadelphia, USA, which includes brown and black stripes. Even though at first glance this might come across as a small alteration, we truly believe the repercussions can become larger. During this Pride Month, it is important to bear in mind that BAME communities have historically been at the forefront of the fight for LGBT+ rights, and that the narrative cannot be shifted away from racial equality. Also as part of our ongoing charitable support, we will be splitting any donations we raise between Stonewall, and ‘Show Racism the Red Card’, the UK’s leading anti-racism educational charity.
