I'm mad and funny , I have heaps of enthusiasm and passion around the LGBTQ+ community. This and many more qualities and attributes I hope to bring to organising another unforgettable Pride in Swindon.
See you at the event!!
I've been part of the Pride team since day one, and I am always looking for new ways to help raise funds or develop our current events. I have been so lucky over the years to have a great team behind me, with Miss Bridy's Angels working together with me to raise valuable funds.
So onwards and upwards as Swindon & Wiltshire Pride 2021 is on the horizon!
We had such positive feedback from Swindon & Wiltshire Pride 2019 that I've decided to go again in 2020. With the help of a great supporting team, Penny and I look forward to making the stages at Swindon & Wiltshire Pride 2021 another great success.
