OK, I know it’s not Sunday, but it’s Pride weekend in London so that means I’m getting this in early because it’s time to party with my Play for Pride playlist.
Pride is a moment of celebration and reflection. While we celebrate the where we are, we must always, as a community of LGBTQ+ and its allies, take the time to remember where we came from and those who sacrificed everything to fight for the freedoms many of us take for granted. While here in London we live in a rich and diverse culture that offers equal rights and protections, there are 72 countries around the world where being LGBT can be met with abuse, arrest and even death. This is why we march.
So, while you’re out flying that beautiful rainbow flag, remember those whose shoulders we stand on. Have fun, be safe, and most importantly, have PRIDE because you are wonderful.
Happy Pride everyone. x
