Pride London chair joins public debate on gay festival's future

Gay Star News invites everyone to a public meeting on how to create a world class pride in London

Pride London chair joins public debate on gay festival's future

Pride London chairman Tony Hughes is now confirmed as a panelist at a public debate to decide the future of the LGBT festival in the UK capital.

Gay Star News editor Tris Reid-Smith will chair the meeting at Heaven nightclub on 25 July at 5.30pm, with representatives from leading gay organizations, stakeholders of all kinds, sponsors, LGBT businesses and the community joining together to talk about how we can create a world class pride in London.

The debate, hosted by G-A-Y at the world famous venue, will be completely open to all members of the public and comes after controversy rocked this year’s event held on Saturday (7 July).

London was hosting World Pride but it was scaled back at the last minute with a rally cut short, floats taken out of the parade and an official street party in Soho cancelled.

The meeting will focus on what kind of pride people want to see in the future. Speakers and a question and answer session will consider what the purpose of pride is, how it can serve the whole LGBT community and how it should be managed.

The event will be at Heaven, Under the Arches, Villiers Street, London, WC2N 6NG on Wednesday 25 July at 5.30pm. The venue has disabled access.
