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.

Brilliant BeatBoxer Beatboxing at London Pride, 2017!

This beatboxer got my hitherto dead ovaries coming alive and jumping for joy when I stumbled on his street performance at London Pride, 2017. He sure set the crowd on fire and he was a sheer pleasure to watch. Guy got moves, I sure loved his swag and accent.

After a bit of stalki… oops, sorry, digging for info, I finally learned he goes by the stage name MPFree.

Needless to say, I am now a fan of beatboxing. I’ve even started practising some beats at home. I should find out where he regularly gigs as it would be nice to take a few more notes from the expert. #LoveHappensHere.

Enjoy the video.

Sights and Sounds of London Pride 2017

Cheesy singing, dirty dancing and that moment revellers jumped into the Trafalgar square fountain; it is fair to say I had massive fun at London Pride, 2017.

Held on 8 July, 2017 with the catchy theme, ‘Love Happens Here‘, London Pride 2017 was more fun than political for me. I decided to fly solo rather than march in the parade. I cheered on those who were walking in the parade and later joined the party at the big stage in Trafalgar square where various talented artists performed and entertained the appreciative audience. As the young ones would say, it was lit!

Enjoy the videos!

Enjoy the beautiful, diverse, fun sights and sounds of London Pride, 2017, devoid of my horrible singing. #LoveHappensHere
