You can’t keep a good Pride down!
The Covid-19 pandemic may mean it’s far from 'business as usual' at the moment, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get into that Birmingham Pride spirit!
From 2pm on Sunday (24 May), Birmingham Pride is broadcasting a special Digital Pride on Facebook, complete with appearances by a whole host of stars.
Big names contributing to an occasion you really won’t want to miss include Kelly Rowland, Alan Carr, Olly Alexander, Jake Shears, Katy B, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, SIGALA, Vengaboys, Tom Aspaul, Hannah Wants, @Miss Peppermint and Vicky Jackson.
There’s plenty for Drag fans to enjoy too, courtesy of some of the biggest and best artists on the UK scene. A line-up to die for includes Baga Chipz, Miss Marty, Miss Penny, Sandra London, Amy LaQueefa, James Gavina Cowper, Ginny Lemon, Sum Ting Wong, Mathu Blanche Stephens, Dahliah Rivers and Yshee Black.
And that’s not all... The online event also features key speakers Peter Tatchell, Andrew Moffat, Lawrence Barton and Michael Cashman.
Although Birmingham Digi Pride is a free event, you can still help out local LGBTQ groups and charities by donating through Pride’s GoFundMe page. Every little bit helps at a time when so many of our LGBT organisations are struggling.
So please do give if you can - and whether you can or can’t, be sure to fasten your seatbelts for what promises to be a fantastic online experience, enjoyed from the comfort of your own sofa. Let's party!
