HARDWARE store Wickes has been praised by the LGBTQ+ community for its float at Brighton Pride.

Two signs reading “No LGB without a T” and “Ban conversion therapy for all” were displayed on the float, expressing solidarity with transgender people.

Conversion therapy is the pseudoscientific practice of attempting to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity to conform to heterosexual or other norms.

While the government has outlined plans to ban the practice of sexuality, the ban does not apply to transgender people.

Pride attendees took to Twitter to praise the company for its support, with one saying: “The spongy ‘Happy Pride’ that most companies express while doing nothing else is getting boring.

“This is a much bolder, much better way of showing your care and not apologizing for it.”

The float was also decorated with various Pride flags and color names such as “Perfectly Pan”, “Glorious Gay” and “Quirky Queer”.

“My Pride flag is now a Wickes color chart,” said another Twitter user.

However, the LGB Alliance, which opposes gender identity education in schools and gender recognition reform, slammed the float’s message, saying: “You cannot seriously believe that lesbian, gay and bisexual people cannot meet without trans people’s permission.” people may organize in our own interest.”

Taking to Twitter to celebrate Brighton Pride, Wickes said they were “proud to be a part of their 30th anniversary celebration and even prouder of our LGBTQ+ network who work hard every day to ensure everyone at Wickes can feel like at home”.
