The Pride Guide 2019

Pride Month is here and we couldn’t be more excited! Chosen as the month to commemorate the Stonewall Riots, it is a chance to recognise the impact LGBTQ+ people have had in the world. Championing the LGBTQ+ community, it’s a chance to celebrate diversity, freedom and of course, LOVE! We’ve rounded up the must-do and see events, shows and parades so you can have your best Pride ever…



The movie we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! Rocketman re-tells legendary rock star and icon, Sir Elton John’s early life and breakthrough years. It’s also the first major Hollywood production to show a male love scene on-screen. If that’s not a way to kick off Pride, we don’t know what is! In cinemas now!
