Brighton & Hove Pride have agreed to allow participation of the TUI LGBTQ network in this year’s Pride LGBTQ+ Community Parade after seeking formal clarification from TUI that they have stopped all involuntary deportation of refugees since 2021.
“TUI can confirm that we haven’t conducted any flights relating to involuntary deportation since June 2021 and there are no plans to conduct any further flights.”
Brighton & Hove Pride said:
“We will not partner or allow participation of any airline that is complicit with the deportation of refugees, often back to places of danger or prejudice. Brighton and Hove has always been a welcoming City and we will continue to liaise with local refugee charities to ensure we are a welcoming and inclusive Pride.”
