The Leasing Foundation has announced that it will host its annual Pride celebration on 16 July at the Shoosmiths venue in London, UK.  

The event, which is open to all friends and allies of the LGBTQ+ community, promises an ‘engaging evening’ on a rooftop terrace, featuring networking opportunities and a panel discussion.

Scheduled to run from 5pm to 8:30pm at Shoosmiths, the event will bring together industry professionals and supporters of the LGBTQ+ community.

This year’s panel discussion will aim to provide ‘valuable’ insights and support for those guiding young members of the LGBTQ+ community, the organisers said.

The event will feature Oscar Hoyle, CEO of Blossom LGBT and a nationally recognised LGBTQIA+ advocate, as the keynote speaker.

Jamie Thomas, a principal software engineer at Alfa, will moderate the panel, which includes Oscar Hoyle, Andrew Denton, CEO of Alfa and co-founder and director of the Leasing Foundation; and Lewis Banford, head of broker sales at Liberty Leasing and trustee of Breakout Youth.
