The Pride 2017 celebrations have started! Ophelia, our Senior Registrar tells us more about this wonderful London event!
Hello friends and students of Tti! Excuse my excitement , but it just so happens that my absolute favourite time of the year is just around the corner…
“What is that?” I hear you ask…well, it is only Pride in London!
The Pride Festival takes place from Saturday 24 June to Sunday 9 July 2017, with the Parade and main events on Saturday 8 July 2017, with several activities taking place in London throughout these dates.
The Mayor of London has announced that 2017 will see the biggest and best celebrations yet. Over 40,000 people joined the Pride in London parade last year and as many as a million people took to the streets to celebrate, make their voice heard, and be a part of something special.
This seems to be a particularly significant year to get together to embrace and celebrate acceptance, diversity and, above all, L-O-V-E!
I know I will be donning one of my colourful wigs and as much glitter as I can get away with , so make sure that you join one of the many events or, if nothing else, come join us at this year’s Parade.
Happy Summer and Happy Pride!
