Report written by Ella Jeffries (She/her)
The sun was out and although there were no weather-related rainbows, Firstsite in Colchester was full of rainbow Pride!
A massive welcome to Hazel and well done on your first GoodGym task! Hazel got stuck in with helping sell tickets at the door while Louise went to marshal and the fabulous Pride parade and then came back to scan tickets. Meanwhile Tav and I were on litter picking duty.
As usual the event was great fun with lots of food, music, performers, acceptance and love!
A great day we were proud to be part of.
Colchester Pride started in 2017, founded by a small team of dedicated volunteers. Since then we have grown in size and scale, and are thrilled to have received support and funding from a number of organisations including, but not limited to, The OutHouse, the Lottery Community Fund, UNISON, East of England Co-op, Colchester Borough Homes, Colchester Council, Our Colchester and the Mercury Theatre.See more
