Tesco has been praised by shoppers after it changed its logo on Facebook.

The grocer changed its logo to represent the Pride colours to commemorate Pride Month, which began on June 1.

The new image features Tesco's normal logo with the Pride flag colour panels under each letter.

The picture received 1,500 likes, with over 250 comments and dozens of shares too.

One customer said: "As someone that works for Tesco/OneStop I can honestly say they have been the most supportive and diverse company.

"I'm proud to work for them."

Another said: "This is brilliant, I hope we see others do it too."

And a third simply added: "Class move, Tesco."

June is the month chosen to celebrate pride as it was the month of the Stonewall riots, the protests that changed gay rights for a lot of people in America and beyond.

Various events are held across the globe during the month as a way of recognising the influence LGBT+ people have had throughout history.

As well as being a month-long celebration packed with events, Pride is an opportunity to peacefully protest and raise political awareness of current issues facing the LGBT+ community and beyond.

Tesco shared another post with a Pride theme, posting a video with the caption: "Happy Pride!

"Ahead of a month of celebration and reflection, we spoke to three keen LGBTQ+ bakers about community, their favourite bakes and what Pride means to them."

Yesterday, thousands of current and former Tesco workers won a legal argument in their fight for equal pay.

The European Court of Justice has ruled that an EU law could be relied on in making equal pay claims against their employer.

Tesco workers, mostly women, have argued that they failed to receive equal pay for work of equal value with colleagues in its distribution centres who are mostly men.

They said this breached EU and UK laws.
