Be more you. You're ace.
Pride is town, and all around town in fact...
The rainbow bus stops and security cordons at New Street are all well and good, but this weekend it's the real deal. From the parade at 12pm on Saturday, by order of Birmingham Pride, the city's going to smile and sparkle right past our bedtime on Sunday. And that extends far past the huge line-ups in the Gay Village, which you definitely won't need our help to locate. Just turn up to hear an extraordinary collection of children’s stories inspired by the lives of LGBTQIA+ people and their experience of the world (with Ginger Johnson, 3pm Sunday). Or how's about some musicalness with with former WWF Lightweight Champion and international dance music DJ Lady Miss Ikea, appearing before RuPaul’s Drag Race in the Symphony Hall's cafe bar no less. 'Be You' is this year's call to action and whether you can or can't make it to this Pride, maybe give that bit a go?
