Archbishop of Wales gives support to Pride Cymru

by Tola Mbakwe

The Archbishop of Wales has said there is no place for discrimination in society, in his message of support for Pride Cymru this weekend.

Most Rev Andrew John said the Church in Wales fully supports LGBT+ communities across Wales and wished them a safe and happy event.

In a message published on Thursday, he wrote: "It is a privilege for me as the Archbishop of Wales to offer my support to Pride Cymru. The Church in Wales has long supported Pride Cymru and each year we take part in the Faith Tent celebrations. It's important that the Church in Wales offers its full support to LGBT+ communities across Wales because justice is one of the hallmarks of the Christian faith and there is no place for discrimination in society."

Last year, the Church in Wales passed a Bill to allow same-sex blessings in its church buildings.
Since then it's called for a ban on conversion therapy and campaigned against a proposed law in Ghana which would criminalise LGBT+ people.

It was also part of those who called on the Lambeth Conference to redraft the controversial Call on Human Dignity.

Pride Cymru begins on 27th August in Cardiff.
