Bournemouth Pride 2018

Last year due to my knee injury after my accident at work I couldn’t attend pride, so this year I was beyond excited for it this year. This year I invited my little sister and family friends came down to stay. It made the weekend even more enjoyable.

We were all so excited when the guest list was announced a while ago. A complete 90s throwback, S Club 7, Michelle Heaton, Artful Dodger, Dane Bowers, DJ Big Ben,  Courtney Act & Sam Callahan. My inner child was screaming with joy!

The atmosphere was so happy, the weather was beautiful and there was so much glitter! We brought glitter to go on our faces and I also brought rainbow face paint. The theme was all things Hawaiian, the decorations were amazing, including huge balloons and floats.

Loved having the rainbow paint and the glitter – however the glitter was annoying to get off haha!

The show that each of the acts put on was incredible. We were front row , so we had a great view, even if we were stood next to the speakers and could barely hear afterwards haha!

It was amazing to spend time with one of my little sisters and some great friends. It was such an inclusive and happy environment. Everyone smiling, dancing and laughing. I love how happy that environment made me feel. All people from all areas and all walks of life and sexuality just coming together and celebrating life and one another. I always leave pride feeling very inspired and humbled to have met and seen so many amazing people.

I have only ever been to Bournemouth Pride and only ever had such a good time. In the future I want to attend other pride festivals and experience them in different areas.

Have you ever been to a pride festival? What did you think?
