All Things Pride

This week London’s iconic Pride parade comes to Trafalgar Square. To help spread the love, here’s a list of our favourite things that celebrate LGBTQ social and self acceptance...

Over the weekend I watched the new it-movie ‘Booksmart’ and can report it lives up to all the hype. Funny, witty, touching, and best of all – it has one queer protagonist. The way it’s portrayed is so seamless and natural, tackling all the ordinary teenage angst around first crushes and sex: but from a lesbian point of view.

@queerbible is a beautiful collection of essays and illustrations celebrating LGBTQ heroes. I love reading the stories of everyone they’ve featured – from cultural trailblazers like Pepper Labeija, to activists such as Lola Flash.

Anyone looking for the antidote to soulless mega clubs should head to Sink The Pink, the biggest LGBTQ night in London. A colourful and inclusive alternative to the gay scene’s more male-dominated clubs, its raucous cabaret vibe sticks two fingers up to gender norms. Expect glitter, lip-syncs and plenty of voguing.

Tel Aviv is known for its gay friendlyness all year around so when it’s Pride the entire city is in rainbow colours literally and symbolically. A winning combination of street parties, uber cool club nights and beautiful folk hanging out on the beach – it’s a perfect excuse for a city break (next pride is in June 2020 dates TBC).

This fresh new musical is based on the true-life subject of a 2011 BBC Documentary: Jamie Campbell (a 16 year old, dreaming of drag-queen stardom). This show is truly joyous, touching and entertaining and strikes a lovely balance of humour and sensitivity.
