Ticket To Pride LGBT+ Programme Begins

CRL had a superb week last week with the young LGBT+ people of the Proud Trust, exploring the North West.


From Chester to Liverpool, Manchester to Blackpool, we have been uncovering LGBT+ history for Ticket to Pride. It is vital that all young people from diverse groups and backgrounds feel included in rail; both to shape current and future projects and policy, and to become future rail and community rail employees.


This week we will be putting our research into writing and artwork pieces to go on display at stations to educate passengers on the topic of LGBT+ people, places, events and significance.


On Friday, working with Claire Mooney, we created a Ticket to Pride song, which you can view here:
