Big Thanks & Big Love Paraders

A big thanks to all the paraders who walked with me yesterday for Pride in London 2015, not all of who made it for this final pic. These were my #PrideHeroes. We had people from Birmingham, Nottingham, York, Brighton and London. The weather was gorgeous, fellow paraders abundant and atmosphere electric. A truly memorable day! See you all next year for more. x

 

Walk with me…27 June 2015

I wasn’t planning on doing anything for the London Pride Parade this year due to personal reasons (not having enough time or resource to make it happen). And then I was talking to a friend, Laks, who said it was important to keep the momentum up. This external enthusiasm was all that was needed. Not unlike last year the deadline for registration had just passed and there was a waiting list. And then quite suddenly it became a reality – we have a place – the universe clearly was on side!

We have a place as a walking group to create Asian visibility at Pride. The front banner reads Proud Asian LGBTQ & Allies. All are welcome: whether you’re LGBT or straight, Asian or whatever else – we are family!

Come on your own or bring your family and friends.

For those that participated last year, they’ll know how electric the experience and reaction from the crowd was. Most were first timers and had not marched before.

If you’re free and interested I’d welcome your support. As you know we are stronger and more visible en masse; stand up and be counted and let’s march for solidarity.

I can provide you with a flag or you can bring your own as well as banners and placards too.

A voluntary contribution is welcome. It will go towards the cost of registration, flags and transporting materials to London.

Register your interest with me to be part of London Pride 2015.

See you very soon. x
