As the Orkney Pride events get under way, constituency MSP Liam McArthur, LibDem, has welcomed the celebrations and reaffirmed his commitment to championing equality for those who identify as LGBT+.
This year Orkney Pride is being celebrated with a virtual march and rainbow themed window displays across the county, including at the parliamentary office in Kirkwall.
Liam McArthur said:
“Can I offer my congratulations to Diane Currie and everybody involved in the organisation of Orkney Pride 2021.
“I’m delighted to be part of the Orkney Pride celebrations this year, and I wish everybody involved all the very best in recognising and celebrating the LGBT+ community in our islands.
“We must continue to strive for greater equality and I’m proud of the role Liberal Democrats have played in this journey, including helping to secure equal marriage and campaigning to end harmful conversion therapy.”
