Pride at Argos
Proudly supporting the LGBT+ community.
Why does Pride matter to us? It’s a time that allows us all, whatever our identity, to play our part in helping to raise awareness of equal opportunity and a time for us to celebrate and be visible as a community. Our aim is to become the most inclusive retailer, and that’s why we’re proud to support the LGBT+ community.
What is Pride?
Did you know that the month of June was chosen as LGBT+ Pride month to commemorate the Stonewall riots and recognise the impact LGBT+ people have had in the world?
Although we have come so far in the UK, there is still so much more we can do. Pride events help remind us all that although we can and should be proud of our sexuality and gender identity, there is still work to be done until all of the community are accepted without exception.

Pride for our colleagues
As part of Sainsbury's Argos, we are the UK’s most active LGBTA+ network, supporting colleagues across all of our brands and helping us to become the “most inclusive retailer”. Last year, our business was recognised in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index for the first time, ranking us as the UK’s most LGBT-friendly retailer. Our colleague network, “Proud @ Sainsbury’s”, has over 4,000 registered members. This year we are working towards 3 goals: to support celebrate Pride Month and increase visibility for the LGBT+ community; to reach even more colleagues with our stories of LGBT+ life and tips on how to be a great ally; and to champion inclusivity of all identities.
