There was a beautiful full-page feature about Kings Lynn and West Norfolk Pride in the EDP today. Jo Rust, who helped to organise the event, gave an empowering speech on the history of Pride. Speaking on stage, she said: “I want you all to remember that Pride is political – we wouldn’t be here to celebrate if it wasn’t for the hard work that others have had to put in before us. We have to remember that the first Pride wasn’t a parade it was a riot in response to a police raid on a gay bar, we are lucky we have come so far. We will continue to fight until we have full equality, until every single LGBT person can walk down the street without fear, harassment or discrimination.”
