And so it started! Saturday’s Pride kick-off Rally  went down a treat at our new East River Park location. 

Albeit the slow start, a large and diverse crowd soon gathered under a perfect blue sky, filling the arena and cheering on the performers. Fortune Feimster (Chelsea Lately) and Jai Rodriguez (Queer eye for the Straight guy) were our hilarious hosts, thanks for the laugh guys!
