A lot of Pride with CO-OP

December 8, 2017

This year was my second year at Pride .

I love the whole event as it makes the world that much brighter .

ive always been of the opinion live and let live ,I could not care less what sexual persuasion someone is .

So to me its one big celebration and being me its an opportunity to put a bit more colour into the outfit lol.

last year I was helping with the Amazing Stuart Hatton Jnr with his campaign SO WHAT (pic below)

 This year I was asked by a great friend of mine Cheryle Waters to join with the CO-OP and help promote Pride with them .


we started at the Newcastle Pride and wow what a day Dave Knowles and the guys were all there  ,Yes it rained yes it was cold but what an amazing day 

the support was incredible and I have to say this was my favourite outfit yet .

The guys at CO-OP were so good at promoting what they do for the community ,it was an absolute pleasure to be involved





I also met up with the fab Stuart Hatton jnr again with Mr Gay Scotland  Mr Gay Wales and Mr Gay England 


also got to see the lush Kerry King -Neale AKA Ursula 



Then I was invited on a road trip to Leeds Pride I'm soooo glad I said yes 

what an amazing place we drove down (Cheryle Waters Adam Hampton and I)

Singing and laughing the whole way 


I got changed in a Carpark  not the most glamourous changing room ever ( DO THEY KNOW WHO I AM LOL)




 Then on to Leeds Pride we headed 

it wasn't far but OMG we couldn't go more than 5 steps without selfies ,it was honestly like being a rock star lol

once the Parade started we took about 15 mins to actually reach the corner to the main road ,now ive had my share of cheers before but this was a whole new ball game ,we actually felt the wind from the roar of the crowd it was truly breathtaking .

I cant thank the CO-OP enough for asking me to go with them as its an experience ill never forget .
