Messiah Foundation International UK participated in this year’s Croydon PrideFest to show their support for the LGBT community. Our team had an amazing time! Many of our delegates took part in various activities such as face painting, dancing to the live music and much more.
The LGBT community has been marginalised from the society and is subjected to discrimination even today. However, we at Messiah Foundation do not care whether you are transgender, bisexual, homosexual, heterosexual or anything else. Our message caters for the souls, not the bodies! We simply love and respect humanity. Therefore, the Croydon PrideFest was a wonderful opportunity to introduce our message of love, peace and equality to members of the LGBT community.
More than 3000 festival-goers saw the Divine Signs and merciful images of HDE Lord Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi and Jesus Christ. Our members held up banners near the entrance of Queens Gardens where the parade culminated. Over 100 copies of the Messiah Herald Magazine, a monthly publication by Messiah Foundation, were also distributed at the pride.
Mr Steve Reed, Croydon’s Labour MP, issued a statement in support of Messiah Foundation’s labour of love. Here is what he said:
‘We’re all minorities in this community, and we have to look out for each other. It’s good to see you all out here tonight and I am delighted to support you!’
Another festival-goer stated,
‘Wow, it’s great to see and hear something new and exciting. Your organisation is doing a wonderful job towards the betterment of our society!’
Overall, the festival was sensational. We will continue to participate in such events in the near future as we spread HDE Gohar Shahi’s message.
