2016 was the biggest Pride ever!
40,000 people joined the Pride in London parade and as many as a million people took to the streets to celebrate, make their voice heard, and be a part of something special.
Stunned in the aftermath of the shootings in Orlando, our community came together. Our message of living life with No Filter – celebrating the opportunity to be free, but also recognising that so many people are unable to be themselves – resonated around the world.
This sentiment is especially true for those of us who have been part of stifling religions and high control groups. It takes years to be able to feel truly liberated after such an experience.
Let’s make 2017 bigger and better than ever.
p.s. Please remember that I’m organising these events for free and making no profit. I pay the organiser dues of £12/month out of my own pocket, so if you can, please paypal a smaaaaall amount to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring some spare change to pay for the upkeep of the group. Thanks a lot.
