Today marks 50 years since the first UK Pride. Members of the LGBT+ community who marched through London faced hostility and backlash.

But they persevered and today we celebrate and remember the groundbreaking work of LGBT+ activists over the past 50 years. 🏳️‍🌈

“Zara believed that a woman should be able to walk home.”

Please, take the time to read every word of this tribute to Zara Aleena by her family. I’m not sure I’ve read anything quite like it before.

It was great to host the launch of the joint report ‘We’ve Not Given Up’ & meet some fab people who all share the aim of highlighting the needs of young women & girls caught up in the criminal justice system. Powerful testimonies from two young women @Agenda_alliance @the_AYJ

Excellent meeting chaired by @FloEshalomi at launch of @Agenda_alliance Report “We’ve not given up” young women surviving the criminal justice system. We must do more @UKCommons

It’s more than language. These archaic mindsets need to change and have no place in our sport. I’ve been surrounded by these attitudes and targeted my whole life. There has been plenty of time to learn. Time has come for action.

Great to speak at the @TargetOvarian reception today

When more people are aware of Ovarian Cancer symptoms, more lives are saved.

Make sure you're aware of:
💜 Persistent bloated tummy
💜 Always feeling full
💜 Tummy pain
💜 Needing to wee more

Labour’s commitment to NATO is unshakable. As the Madrid Summit for NATO’s next Strategic Concept begins today, we need this 10 year plan to spell out how the Alliance will respond to increasing threats to our security – a thread 👇

En route back to London after successful @CommonsDCMS probe into local journalism @CardiffJomec @BBCWales @S4C with @julianknight15 @JulieElliottMP @BrineMP and @KevinBrennanMP who performed great set and duet at @ealing_project pre launch event last week with @Valerie_VazMP

With the eyes of the country on Wakefield, a defeat for the Conservatives here could boot Boris Johnson out of Downing Street.

Today is a once in a lifetime opportunity. The power is in your hands. Use your vote. Vote Labour.

I am one of almost 100 Labour women MPs who have written to Boris Johnson today urging him to block new rules which threaten the rights of rape survivors to seek counselling before their attackers go on trial. No survivor should ever have to choose between therapy and justice.

Yesterday I raised serious concerns about access to GPs and NHS dentists in our city. The Minister used her response to score cheap political points with false information. I've asked her to correct the record and focus on the job. Portsmouth deserves better from this Government

Good to meet Minister ⁦@WalkerWorcester⁩ ⁦@educationgovuk⁩ with Mr Ludlow ⁦@jleckieacademy⁩ &Mr Smith ⁦@BlueCoatWalsall⁩

Great to kick off #JusticeWeek today with @TheLawSociety & the Bar Council

Had a frank & productive conversation about the impact of legal aid cuts, the courts backlog & how to improve the CJS

The Labour Party is committed to increasing access to justice & putting victims first

Anniversaries of loss are not easy. I’ve largely avoided social media as have been spending time with family, but I want to say Thank You for all the messages I have received - publicly & privately. It means a great deal that Jo is still remembered & loved by so many people❤️

Tomorrow night is the night for the Chairman & Manager to answer supporters questions both historically and moving forward into next season

Under the Tories, supply chains are a mess and working people are paying the price.

Labour has a plan to sort problems at British ports, cut red tape on importers and buy, make, and sell more in Britain.

We’d like to say a HUGE thank you to @WMerciaPolice @ThamesVP @SCAS999 @OxonFireRescue @WestMidsFire @HWFire & @Valerie_VazMP for coming along to our @999BSL_UK launch events today.

It’s great to see so much support behind the new #999BSL service 🙌🏻🙌🏻

Delighted to deliver letter from MPs prepared by @PGMBMlaw @UK100_ @ClientEarth @asthmalunguk @cities_clean @globalactplan @cleanairdayuk @MumsForLungs on #CleanAirDay to No 10 today calling for action to protect our health & climate from Air Pollution! @APPGairpoll https://twitter.com/GeraintDaviesMP/status/1537426273336987648

Geraint Davies @GeraintDaviesMP

Handed No 10 a Clean Air Day letter to PM urging faster reduction of air pollution and that the polluter pays supported by dozens of MPs & NGOs ⁦

Brilliant to see @Valerie_VazMP pop down to support UK manufacturing as well as pledge her support for National Manufacturing Day.

She also took part in the Lean Manufacturing challenge led by our apprentices Cameron and Joel.

It has been five years since 72 people were killed by a fire at Grenfell Tower.

The appalling tragedy is evidence of the unequal society we live in under this Tory government.

Today we remember the victims and demand action to ensure a similar tragedy can never happen again.

It hasn’t sunk in yet but…SOME NEWS.

I am so profoundly grateful & relieved.

Thank you to the judge, my stellar legal team & the 29,000 people who contributed to my legal defence fund. I literally couldn’t have done it without you 🙏🙏🙏

The CILIP Conference in Liverpool is next month. I'll be there both days, speaking on intellectual freedom in public libraries as well as reporting on the conference and meeting as many lovely library people as possible. I hope to see you there. https://cilipconference.org.uk/

Britain’s economy has ground to a halt.

But Rishi Sunak thinks sticking plasters will fix it.

Only Labour has a plan to make our economy stronger – giving families, businesses, the energy sector and our supply chains the security they need.

The Heath Secretary didn’t need a review for examples of poor leadership in the NHS, he needed a mirror.

Longest waiting times in history
Lowest patient satisfaction since 1997
Cancer care worse in every year since 2010

Lions led by donkeys.

‘Wanting and inadequate’

My powerhouse of a constituent, @WillowKaty and @JMidkent have done so much to raise awareness of the issues facing carers @WeAreCarers - not just during #CarersWeek but every single day. They'll keep on going but carers need more help, support, recognition-and a Carers Strategy!

Just spoke in West Hall debate called by James Gray MP on planning&battery energy storage in favour of protecting green belt land against Anesco appl for BESS near Duckery Chapel lane @GtBarrSMargaret @WalsallLabour

The Tories promised 40 new hospitals. Then revealed they would be refurbishments instead of new buildings.

Now government infighting is delaying care even further.

Patients cannot afford to wait.

The Conservatives are failing our children.

Exams chaos
Failure to deliver free school meals
A disastrous tutoring programme
And students facing exams without support to recover lost learning.

But the Education Secretary wouldn't even turn up.

While Conservatives were at each other’s throats plotting and scheming to overthrow the Prime Minister last night I was in a darkened room in Parliament with @jamesmurray_ldn @Valerie_VazMP watching @FilmEaling with festival winners

So proud to live in such a creative community!

The choice is clearer than ever before:

Divided Tories propping up Boris Johnson with no plan to tackle the issues you are facing.

Or a united Labour Party with a plan to fix the cost of living crisis and restore trust in politics.

Labour will get Britain back on track.
