Pride in London apologises after top Black member resigns over racism concerns


The most senior Black team member at Pride in London has resigned over concerns about racism within the organisation, The Independent can reveal.

Rhammel Afflick has quit as director of communications after seven years with the group, which organises the Pride march, attended by roughly 1.5 million people in the centre of the capital each year.

The 26-year-old has alleged that the LGBT+ group had turned a blind eye to bigotry, while Black volunteers have been ostracised.

Mr Afflick and other staffers have alleged that Pride in London has failed to tackle racism and prioritise diversity in its ranks.

In the space of three months, five senior volunteers have left, citing these concerns, The Independent understands.
