On Saturday 25 June, I had the privilege of speaking from the main stage of London’s LGBT+ Pride as Deputy Chair of Pride’s Community Advisory Board, representing bi people and communities. This is what I said:
“It is twenty years since I first got involved in Pride in the Capital.
And it was in that year, 1996, that bi and trans people were for the first time recognised in London Pride’s official title.
Twenty years on we are still here, out and proud.
Whether we identify as bi, queer, pan or in any other way, we stand here shoulder to shoulder with our LGBT+ siblings fighting against homophobia, biphobia, and transphobia.
That is what Pride is all about.
Have a great day everyone. Happy Pride.”
