This was the first Pride March I had attended in Newcastle (or anywhere else for that matter). I am not sure exactly how many have been on in the city..but I know there have been a few. I also shot some video, so will do a Youtube pic/video production when I can. Editing video takes ages!
It was a great day for a march. Very hot and sunny. I don’t know the exact numbers but many thousands attended. The march went down Northumberland Street in the city then across town to a local park where there were amusements set up, with a music tent, stalls and basically a place to gather and have a full time. The march was very colourful and represented the whole LGBT community. I was taken as to how many businesses and companies were keen to represent themselves and basically take part in the march.
The over riding thing for me was how many smiling faces there were!! Everyone was enjoing themselves from marchers to some amazed shoppers and bystanders. Let’s face it flamboyance was def the theme of the day.
I did manage to get some great images. Here is a flavour of the day.
Many more images from the day available on my various social media places.
Thanks for looking/reading
