Essex Pride 2018: Celebrating 40 years of the Rainbow Flag

The month of June heralded the start of Pride Month and it has been one pride after another here in UK. I must say, it has been great fun.

I kick-started my Pride month with my local Pride, Essex Pride. It was my second Essex Pride as I have only been living in Essex for a year and a few months now. I must say, the pride is growing on me!

Essex Pride 2018 took place on June 16 at the Central park, Chelmsford. As it was in my neighbourhood, of course, I had to turn up and rock it all day and all night long.

2018 marked 40 years of the Rainbow flag and Essex Pride Celebrated the Rainbow flag at 40 in great style.

I loved the Costa Rainbow cups for Pride Month, I ended up with quite a collection!

Essex Pride, 2018 was a very family friendly and Pets (basically dogs) friendly Pride, with entertainments area for kids and an area for Pride goers to show off their pets.

For me, it was all about the main entertainment stage. The line-ups were good, the drag queens put up a great show, and the tribute acts were amazing. I danced, and I sang (screamed) awfully as you would see from my videos below. It was also an opportunity to meet up with my local LGBT group. I made new friends and generally had a good time.

    I have a hard time taking the LGBT community seriously.

    To start off I am all for anyone e to love anyone they want and support gay marriage and if someone thinks they need to cut of or attach a dong to feel better about themselves then so be it.

    The problem lies in the idea that the LGBT community ‘s second biggest argument is “anyone should be able to love whoever they want to love, which like I said before I fully support. However if put to the test I guarantee the majority of the LGBT community does not practice what they preach. If asked the likely answer to “do you also support groups like NAMBLA?” Is a resounding “no”.

    TheCrawdaddy029 -- You want my thoughts? There are no words for your likes, only SENTENCES. Now, shut up, you paedophile and crawl back into the hole you crawled out from. You can’t hang out on my space, I don’t entertain paedophiles or their allies.
