Logos are a mark of distinction – they are also emblematic of an organisation’s values and beliefs.
At Wellcome, the Pride logo represents the changes we want to see in how we operate as a funder and employer, and the changes we want to see in research culture and the wider science and research sector. We're proud that many Wellcome-funded centres are changing their logos too.
We’ve changed our logo on our social channels and on our homepage banner based on the Pride flag design by Daniel Quasar. It builds on the usual Pride flag by adding stripes that emphasise groups within the LGBTQ+ community that often experience marginalisation.
trans and non-binary people – represented by the white, light pink and light blue stripes
LGBTQ+ people of colour – represented by the brown and black stripes
people living with AIDS and those who have died from it – represented by the black stripe.
