Gay Pride Summer Part II

File:Gay flag.svgYou may remember (or not, it's been a long year...) that some months back, we wrote a post about pride events happening over the summer. We couldn't feature all of them, but now might be a good opportunity to offer a part II.

The events that we've chosen to feature have been picked randomly, but we've listed others, too, below.  

For events that kick-off after August, we'll
do a later post. You lucky, lucky things.

First up, NEWCASTLE PRIDE kicks off on Friday July 18th. They have a weekend of music and events including: Shayne Ward, Vengaboys and Sinitta. For those who like their fun with a calorie burn, there's a 5KM fun run, too. You can find out more here

On Sunday 20th July, it's BRIGHTON DOGGY PRIDE. This poochy pride celebrates dogs and their owners and is run in association with Coastway Veterinary Group and The Dog's Trust. Crufts it might not be, but there will be classes, refreshments and opportunities to spoil your dog with a range of retailers. More details here

Saturday 9th August is SWINDON PRIDE which is held in the Town Gardens. It's a day long affair with live music and events until 10.30pm when the after-party will start on Queen Street. Want to know more? Find out here

Taking place over the bank holiday weekend is CORNWALL PRIDE on Saturday 23rd August. The theme for this year is (very apt) love and marriage. Parades, parties and musical acts will turn Truro into a rainbow town with the entertainment continuing right through until midnight. For more details, click here
